This Marche Au Vin tapestry is based on the work Marche au vin, or Winemarket, first woven in 15th century Flanders. Here we see a glorious scene of the process of grapes harvest or vendanges, and wine making. In this scene we see workers transporting barrels of wine while merchants and courtiers sample and trade wine, accompanied by hounds, and with the castle in the background. The medieval period was a time where tapestry art drew inspiration and granted attention on daily life in the villagers, and used this medium as a showcase of the life and times in the Middle Ages. The color and composition in this piece is masterful and superb. This medieval theme Marche Au Vin tapestry is backed with a lining and a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rods and tassels, where pictured, are not included in the price.
