more information on '1990's tapestry'
A small modern tapestry size 1.34m x 1.55m (4`.5" x 3`.5" ) made in China. This 'Camargo' design has been taken from this French painting of 1730 by Lancrete.
During the last 20 years, as there were not enough old tapestries on the market to meet demand, dealers decided to revive the woven tapestries industry. Beginning in the mid 1990`s these tapestry copies based on well-known historical paintings have been handmade in wool in a number of countries including China.
