This Vendages VII tapestry is based on tapestries woven in Flanders in the 15th century showing the process of grapes harvest and wine making. The artistry in this piece is superb as we see the villagers in their elaborate dress among the vineyards harvesting grapes into baskets, and on the left the wine making and wine press production, where the wine is produced by pressing and poured into vats. Merchants and courtiers are seen to overlook the wine making. The background is a flurry of activity with mille fleur, or flowers of the forest to create a decorative backdrop to the forest scene. This is an example of how art in the Middle Ages turned to focus on daily life, and in a way glorifies the daily processes, to produce art that is so distinctive and beautiful. This piece has superb color and composition. This medieval theme Vendages VII 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.
