Throughout the 16th and 17th century, the Oudenaarde area of Flanders was renowned as a production capital of tapestry weaving. Among their most famous works were their Feuilles de Choux tapestries, which featured the use of cabbage leaves as a design element. “Oudenaarde garden” is a good example of this French verdure style, where the foliage was often adorned with three-dimensional birds, animals, fountains and urns. “Oudenaarde garden” certainly will not disappoint verdure aficionados. Here, cabbage leaves, birds in flight and exotic animals, surround the fountain in the center. Surrounding it all is a rich floral border influenced by the art of the Renaissance. These verdures were very popular with the aristocracy at the time, which commissioned them from these top mill houses in Flanders. This tapestry is lined and comes with a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are purchased separately.
