Behold this exquisite tapestry, a masterpiece from the renowned Berain Grotesques collection, inspired by the illustrious Jean Berain (1640-1711), whose visionary touch likely graced its inception. Within its fanciful architectural realm, statues and musicians dance amidst a symphony of classical motifs, flora, and fauna, set against a backdrop reminiscent of the ancient Roman wall-paintings unearthed in Nero's palace chambers. Dubbed 'grotesques' due to a historic misnomer, this series exudes a playful spirit, a departure from the ornate tapestry styles of its time. Crafted circa 1688, these whimsical designs captivated audiences worldwide, with the Beauvais workshop weaving tales of delight for discerning patrons across the globe during the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries.
