Signed Wool Tapestry After Picasso
Wool pile tapestry "Volutes" after Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), signed. Woven in India. From an edition of 40. It became very popular during the 20th century for Modern artists like Picasso, Chagall, Fernand Leger, Max Ernst, etc… to work with Tapestry weavers to produce artworks, much in the way that they would work with lithographers to make print works. They were also popular because they were highly resilient and very portable. Le Corbusier “lauded tapestries as “nomadic murals” that a city dweller could pack and carry from one apartment to the next.” These artist tapestries can take months to manufacture, and are also prized for their difficulty to fake because of the incredible amounts of labor and skill it takes to produce them.
