Tapestry Art: History
Tapestry, as a type of decorative and applied art, previously represented a lint-free carpet with an ornamental or thematical composition, woven by hand using the cross-weaving method. In order to create a tapestry, the master had to be skillful in the specifics of weaving, as well as possess an exquisite taste of the artist, understand the pattern, chiaroscuro, and color, and be able to combine textures and shades.
Tapestries woven by hand by artists have always been very expensive. In the past, they were only available to nobility and wealthy merchants, and now modern tapestries cost as much as any other work of high-end art. However, after the transition to factory production, high-quality machine-made tapestries became available to everyone and are produced everywhere in the world. France, Italy, Germany, and Belgium are considered the best tapestry producers.
Tapestries presented in our Gallery are machine-made but have a unique nostalgic theme that could be hard to find in the US.
Tapestry paintings are more practical than canvas paintings The fabric production technology makes them resistant to adverse environmental factors:
• Special impregnation prevents fading, dampness of the fabric.
• The thickness of two to three strands guarantees durability, resistance to deformation.
• Dust can be easily removed with a damp cloth.
When you chose a tapestry over a canvas as a decoration for your home, workplace, or summer house, you would not regret it. It is a long-lasting and not expensive piece of art that would make your space special and cozy. It is also a great gift for any occasion – from housewarming and birthdays to New Year.
