Product description

Flemish tapestry -First Edition

"An overview of Flemish tapestry history, spanning the period from the 15th century when pieces of late medieval work were used anew, to shortly before the French Revolution. Each chapter discusses the different production centres and documents workshops, designers, patrons, iconography and use, providing coverage of topics such as Italian designers, international trade, royal patronage and the influence of Rubens.;The book's illustrations reveal not only world-famous, but also little-known and previously unpublished tapestries. Traditionally, Flemish tapestries were made in sets, and the illustrations include a number of complete sets, with many full-page photographs in colour. There are also photographs showing details of tapestries close up. A reference section completes the book."

This copy is in excellent condition throughout both the book itself and also the dust jacket. This is a rare, sought after book which is not readily available at present.
