Vintage French Neoclassical Tapestry France circa 1960

The brilliant colors and elongated figures seen in this mid century modern vintage French needlepoint tapestry from France circa 1960 is the result of the artistic prowess of JC Bissery. Famous for his interpretation of both figurative and abstract subject matter this particular textile depicts a modern interpretation of a Neoclassical theme. A noble man and woman are seen dancing to the music of a musician at a garden fête who is swaying to the sound of a lute. Completing the scene is an urn on a column with a grand swag of fabric fitted though a handle of the urn sweeping across the ground. Flying above the urn is a large bird with out stretched wings while on the right is a glimpse of a stone balustrade. All three figures are dressed in fanciful costumes while the foliage in the background complements the entire scene. The tapestry itself is set within the original dark oak frame that provides a handsome contrast to the charming mid century modern colours that create its distinctive appeal.
