Our Pejman Collection of tapestries comprises many romantic landscapes tapestry designs. Bob Pejman creates idyllic old-world scenes in settings like Lake Como, Venice, Capri, Tuscany and the Amalfi Coast which we are pleased to feature in the Landscapes section of our Contemporary tapestries. These are favourite places in the world for many of us, or are planned future destinations, and his paintings transferred to tapestry art beautifully characterise our memories and dreams.
Bob Pejman’s paintings have been described as romantic realism, influenced by artists like Lawrence Alma-Tadema and Maxfield Parrish. “The scenes are already romantic, but my ideas is to make them even more so.” He continues, “There are no people in my paintings, so you can imagine yourself in the scenes”.
The richness of Pejman Editions is wonderfully set off by the fine weave in 91% cotton of these Belgian tapestriy wallhangings. The yarn is quite thick but is tightly woven resulting in the tapestries having fullness and depth yet still possessing excellent detail. So Bob Pejman’s paintings transfer extremely well into the softer, more three-dimensionable characteristics of art tapestries. They have proved to be one of the most popular styles of our collection.
