This Francois Boucher tapestry shows an idyllic countryside, from a series of 6 tapestries by Boucher called "Noble Pastorale". We see in this work the manor of the village near the blue flowing river surrounded by an idyllic countryside. The intricate details in the foliage in the centre of the work provides a clear and surreal focus to the work. Boucher's works often portrayed what life was like in the French countryside at this time. This French Francois Boucher tapestry "The Old Mill" is backed with lining and a tunnel for easy hanging.
