  • A Beautiful Large French Tapestry.  This handmade tapestry is styled after the 1786 French tapestry entitled Portique de Junon which is conserved in The Musee des Gobelins, Paris, France. Depicts a lovely deity woman to the center, the piece is adorned with floral swags, urns and nude putti playing flutes, and is woven from cotton and wooo.  The informational panel on the verso states that the Tapestry was made in France by the world famous artists of De Rambouillet Company.  Art critics define the De Rambouillet tapestries as “the best reproductions of existing antique tapestries to the world”!.   Measures 68″ x 93″.

    The reproduction of the original piece happens through long and scrupulous stages of workmanship to work of a équipe of artists of DE RAMBOUILLET Company using secrets and techniques of Renaissance masters.  The process invented and followed by the De Rambouillet artisans begins with hand drawn master copy onto cardboard. Then films are hand-drawn, one for each colour present in the tapestry. The colours are chosen with the aid of samples of wool. To make films designed for a tapestry takes from six to nine months. When the drawn films are ready, they are arranged on a special frame and coated with gelatin, to proceed to the imprinting with 7000 watts lamps. This process fixes only the gelatin struck by the light, while the remainder is eliminated by washing. The colours are made from base pigments, are unchanged by the light and guaranteed in time. Before applying scrupulous controls and possible correction are carried out, but in undertones every tapestry will always be different because it is always a process of artistic craftsmanship, so you can say that they are unique pieces

    The tapestry’s fabric is a mixture of linen, viscose and cotton; this is pasted on a table heated to 60 ° C.  At this point, the color is spread on the silk-screening frames by means of a spatula, on average from 12 to 17 as there are colors to make our tapestry, to color the fabric and perform the various steps, one for each film. This is the most delicate operation of the whole process because if a centering mistake happens the tapestry is compromised. When the coloring is finished the tapestry is aged to give it an antique tone.

    To complete the job the fabric on the back is applied by hand with the label on which is given the period in which the tapestry was made with the original name of the subject, the museum where it is stored, then the details on the our tapestry’s production method.  The entire process can take up to a year to make a tapestry.
