A 17th Century Flemish Tapestry Titled "Battle in Jerusalem". Condition: Very Good, minor wear consistent with age and use. Material: Hand woven in wool & silk with beautiful details throughout. Flemish tapestry at the turn of the 15th and 16th centuries meant primarily Brussels tapestry; the city had become the principal center for tapestry weaving, with a character and technique quite unlike that in other workshops.
Novel characteristics too were the search for perfection, recognizable in the earliest works attributed, probably rightly, to Brussels, and a bias towards painting. Today the design of a tapestry is often traced to a famous painting as in the many representations of the Baptism of Christ. For any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
