2017 Jean Camille For Style French Antiques 

310 994 6009 

Created in France in the 1950 this cotton tapestry reflect the democratic desire of that time to produce affordable art . Neo fantastic and influenced by the cubist movement Picart Ledoux tapestry use the vocabulary of natural  symbol like the sun , animal and musical instrument , mixing decorative subject with mythological scene. Picart Le Doux was a great master of Aubusson  tapestry, which has produced over four hundred original tapestries in his  lifetime. This one is an homage to spring ,the lyre birds , possibly about a poem from Jacque Prevert  , edited by Robert Four, La vignete , ( the wine ).Those  tapestry placed on wall to bring an organic feel to a mid century interior  answered the need to add some warmth to an otherwise cold mass produced style of  furnishing so prevalent in the 1950's and 1960'.The lyrebird is a symbol of poetry, song, auditory skills, a love of language and poetic inspiration in all of us.
