Item# 80-016225 







Description

Our floral-patterned shawl is based on Courtiers in a Rose Garden: A Lady and Two Gentlemen, a sumptuous wool and silk tapestry (144050) in the Museums collection. Originally woven in the southern Netherlands, it belongs to a series of tapestries designed to cover the walls of an entire room. The set was possibly made for the French king Charles VII, whose colors were white, red, and green, and one of whose emblems was the rose tree. A royal connection for such luxurious tapestries is certainly likely.

Wool/Silk/Viscose. Imported. 74'' x 28''. Fringe: 1''.

  • Wool/silk/viscose blend
  • Imported
  • 74'' x 28''Fringe: 1''

Art History

The three enclosed gardens at The Cloisters are an integral part of the Museum and count among its treasures. Planted in reconstructed Romanesque and Gothic cloisters, the gardens evoke those found within medieval monasteries and convents.
