« Les Gobelins au siècle des Lumières » at the Galerie des Gobelins, Paris.
The exhibition presents a selection of the best tapestries woven at the Gobelins in the eighteenth century, accompanied by the painted furniture collections of the Mobilier national.
Alongside the traditional religious models, the manufacturing of the Gobelins, under the direction of Charles Le Brun, has undergone an extraordinary revival since the mid-seventeenth century. The subject of epic history is maintained, while other less edifying series appear, destined for royal apartments. This course is detailed via 25 tapestries, their original designs and models, as well as drawings and prints.
