Berlin Tapestry

Workshop of Charles Vigne (active from 1720 to 1752)

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

18th century, around 1740 - 1750

Charles Vigne's predecessors had woven tapestries largely inspired by the hangings of the Royal Manufacture of Beauvais (Grotesques à fond jaune, Histoire de l'Empereur de Chine). Charles Vigne, for his part, produced several tapestries whose characters were directly inspired by the engravings of French masters such as Watteau in the Concert Champêtre and Nicolas Lancret in L'Enfance de la tenture des Quatre âges de la vie (two tapestries presented in 1998 by the Galerie Chevalier, Paris).
