This Verdure Chantilly tapestry shows a verdure showing a beautifully fertile countryside. A river is between the richly growing foreground and the manor in the background. Chantilly refers to a commune of France surrounded by the Chantilly forest, and inhabited by the cousins of kings of France from 17th to the 19th centuries. The tree foliage is particularly rich in tones as the colors gradate from light green to deep emerald. An elaborate border completes the piece. Verdures were used to decorate homes to bring the outdoors inside, and this is a prime example of a lavish countryside scene which celebrates the beauty of nature. This large landscape Verdure Chantilly tapestry is backed with lining and tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are purchased separately.
