Les Amours des Dieux

Detailed Image
Les Amours des Dieux 
Famous for his pastoral and mythological paintings, Francois Boucher was commissioned by King Louis XVI to create a set of nine tapestries based on mythological themes. Les Armours des Dieux is one of his most celebrated works. Adorned with the king’s coat of arms at the top, the tapestry portrays the Greek god Apollo courting his love, Clytie, the water nymph daughter of Oceanus. Accompanied by cherubs, the tapestry is notable for its free use of nudity, a sign of the relative freedom the arts enjoyed during the reign of Louis XVI. Boucher’s design was woven at the Manufacture Royale de Beauvais in the mid 18th century. His romantic scenes continue to be popular with discerning collectors. This tapestry is lined and has a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are purchased separately.

Ordered a tapestry to very short timescales just before Christmas... not expecting to receive before the New Year. Extremely surprised when it arrived just before Christmas during all the really snowy weather

...& even more surprised at the high quality of the tapestry. I am now about to place an order for another tapestry for my daughter's 18th birthday.

Highly recommended!

David, England
