Aubusson Painting Remnants of Lion and Heron
Antique, set of 2, painted remnants
Lion 12″ l x 16″ w

These are original Aubusson paintings which were used as patterns for the famous woven Aubusson tapestries. The medium is gouache on paper. Some are linen-backed, some still have pins attached, and some have numbers and notes scribbled on the back from the pattern makers. The patinas are distressed, the edges worn and torn. The overall feeling of each piece is that of abundance, elegance and beauty. Read more about the story behind these paintings and how to care for them HERE.
