Rare Floss Silk Hunting Tapestry

This remarkable work is one of a small group of floss silk tapestry woven in Lucca around 1700. It depicts an Arcadian landscape with hunters and wild animals such as boars and lions in the foreground, a lake with geese, and architectural features in the background. The colours are extraordinary, light and fresh, and they shimmer as one walks around the piece. The imagery is quite wonderful. A real masterpiece of the woven arts.
