We have some new tapestries by Monet, Renoir and Gauguin. That is, new tapestries of old paintings by these Impressionist masters.
Weavers in France and Belgium have released several Impressionist tapestries recently, seemingly a trend; one we approve of thoroughly. These two, for example.
Camille and a Child in the Garden is a charming Monet tapestry from a Claude Monet oil painting of 1875 at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. This personal family scene was painted in the Monets garden at Argenteuil four years before his wife Camille died of tuberculosis.
Above is Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s Dance at le Moulin de la Galette. Le Bal du Moulin de la Galette was painted by Renoir in 1876, now exhibited at the Musee d’Orsay in Paris. (Incidentally, if you enjoy Impressionist art this the art gallery to visit.). It shows Sunday afternoon in Montmartre with Parisians drinking, dancing and eating galettes, flat cakes similar to pancakes. Now a Belgian tapestry, this Renoir painting is fifth most expensive painting ever sold. You can enjoy this masterpiece in one of three sizes for considerably less money!
