Rare Italian Floss Silk Tapestry

Rare Italian Floss Silk Tapestry

This beautiful hunting style tapestry with exotic animals in an Arcadian landscape belongs to a rare group of works produced in Tuscany. It is an extraordinary thing. The pale delicate colours shimmer under the light and the design is elegant and pleasing on the eye. The drawing of the landscape and foliage is quite beautiful while the figures are drawn in charming period attire. There is some minor loss to the silk in places, but it has been cleaned and conserved professionally.
