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]

Segmentum from a Tunic, 750 - 799. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Segmentum from a Tunic, 750 - 799. Creator: Unknown

Segmentum from a Tunic, 750 - 799. A fierce lion with a pronounced mane is shown taking down a large bull on a prestigious red ground with stylized trees and plants. Both animals appear to be lunging toward us, the viewer. The border displays a formal wreath of rosettes. This roundel and two additional matching examples suggest that they originally decorated the front and back of a tunic. The scene is presumably an abbreviated reference to the royal hunt, one of the pleasures of the court that served as propaganda to legitimize the sovereignty of rulers by confirming their ability to control natural resources and manage vast enterprises, especially in the Near East and in Iran
