MODERN TAPESTRIES

In the last few years, after more than a century of tapestry-making which, though often very skillful in technique, became more and more incompetent in design, a reaction has set in. The experiments made by Madame Cuttoli, by well-known painters like Dufy and, more recently, Matisse, the researches in color carried out in the laboratory of the Gobelins factory, and the weaving done there and at Aubusson after the designs of Lurçat, Gromaire, Saint- Saens, and other leading French artists have given new life and scope to the art of French tapestry.
