French or Italian Tapestry

Woven in wool and silk (warp in wool and weft in wool and silk)

Circa 1600


We do not know the painter who created the model of this tapestry, but it is interesting to compare in Jean Ehrmann's book, Antoine Caron, Peintre des Fêtes et des massacres, Paris, 1986, the drawing of figure 50 representing Les Manœuvres d'armée with the present piece. Also noteworthy is the drawing attributed to Rosso Fiorentino (1494 -1540), an Italian painter who worked in Fontainebleau for François I as the King's first painter from 1532 to 1540.
