Still lifes have been part of the fabric of human civilization since the dawn of time. In fact, Egyptians painted still lifes on the walls of the great tombs, believing that the items in the paintings would become real in the afterlife. They reached their zenith as art in the late 17th century but are still very popular, even today. “Bouquet with grapes” is a classic still life tapestry. Here, the artist has created his own world through the arrangement of the flowers, grapes, urn and creeping vines. The colors of brown, sage, forest, plum and marigold spring forth to create a still life that takes an ordinary scene and makes it extraordinary. “Bouquet with grapes” is lined on the back and comes with a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are purchased separately.
