Gobelins weaving, France, 18th century, (1898). Creator: Unknown

Gobelins weaving, France, 18th century, (1898). 'Fig 1: Chair-seat by Louis Tessier, Louis XV [c1715-1774]. Fig 2: Basket of fruit by the same Artist, Louis XV. Fig 3: Garland of fruit by the same Artist (Louis XV.). Fig 4: Chair-Back by Jacques, Louis XVI [c1774-1792]. Fig 5: Doorpanel by this Artist, Louis XVI. Drawn by W. Vivien, Paris...It is no wonder, therefore, that in the ensuing period under Louis XV and XVI Artists such as Watteau, Boucher, Tessier, Jacques and others should have taken up the work, or that they were certain of a triumph in the pursuit of a special department of art. For instance, if we observe the tasteful manner in which Tessier, the king's-flower painter, could group his flowers and fruit in characteristic garlands, and bouquets, we shall not hesitate to reckon him one of the finest flower-painters of the French school. The details here represented, from important works by this master, give some idea of his marked ability'. Plate 82b from "The Historic Styles of Ornament" translated from the German of H. Dolmetsch. [B.T. Batford, London, 1898]

'Las Hilanderas', (The Spinners), 1657, (c1934). Artist: Diego Velasquez

'Las Hilanderas', (The Spinners), 1657, (c1934). Traditionally, believed to depict women workers in the tapestry workshop of Santa Isabel, iconography suggests Ovid's Fable of Arachne, the story of the mortal Arachne who dared to challenge the goddess Athena to a weaving competition and, on winning the contest, was turned into a spider by the jealous goddess. Oil on canvas. Held in the Museo del Prado, Madrid. From Galerias De Europa: Museo Del Prado, by A. De Beruete y Moret & Augusto L. Mayer. [Editorial Labor, S.A., Barcelona, c1934]
