Important Toile Peinte Panel, Louis XV c. 1770

An important and rare room-size Louis XV 18th century “toile peinte” panel, depicting an Aubusson-style landscape with a mansion (or chapel), trees, classical pillars, foliage, whimsical birds, flowers, and  a parrot.  Sometimes referred to as "tapestries" though these were used in place of the much more common woven works.  This well-preserved piece was executed at the Tournemine workshop, in Angers, France, directed by artist Coulet de Beauregard, circa 1770.  The particularly vibrant blues are primarily Prussian blue, a color that was newly invented at the time.  Similar works, considered national treasures, hang in the Musee Prebytere Savennieres in Angers, France.
