In this tapestry "New Chateau" we see a scene from a series of tapestries designed by Francois Boucher (1703-1770) which depicts life in the villages in the countryside. Here we see the focus on the washing women of the village doing their duties. The village itself is seen as a highly developed structure of houses, bridges and trees and plants to create an image of harmonious living environment which as a feature of the verdures and tapestries of 18th century France. These works highlighted the beauty of the natural countryside as well as the buildings of the villagers. This large panoramic scene is a beautiful representation of village life in the French countryside. This large tapestry "New Chateau" is backed with lining and a tunnel for easy hanging.
