Ancient and contemporary tapestry

You have come across them in the detours of a museum, a castle or in an unexpected place, the tapestries stand on the walls like large murals.
Tapestry is an ornamental textile work intended for wall decoration and furnishing. Its history dates back to Antiquity: among the oldest preserved testimonies, the remains discovered in the Coptic tombs of Egypt attest to the use of this process in the 3rd century, for the manufacture of small pieces first intended for the ornament of clothing. In the Middle Ages, tapestries take on larger dimensions and are woven to dress the walls of large residences and churches. Used to insulate interiors from noise and cold and adapted by their mobile nature to the itinerant nature of the princely courts, they are also used as ephemeral decoration during religious festivals or civil ceremonies organized on the occasion of important events.
Tapestries are considered objects of great luxury: they are among the most precious pieces in the collections of sovereigns and help to assert the power of their owners. Sometimes enriched with metallic threads of gold and silver, these woven pieces can constitute monetary reserves, but also very popular diplomatic gifts.

La Tapisserie du XX au XXI ème siècle

La Tapisserie du XX au XXI ème siècle 

Moderne - Contemporaine

Des artistes contemporains créent des cartons pour qu'ils soient réalisés en tapisserie.
On parle alors d'artistes cartonniers qui, le dessin effectué sur une commande ou un travail personnel, font exécuter leurs œuvres par des liciers de manufactures de tapisseries comme celles d'Aubusson ou des ateliers indépendants.
Certains artistes comme Josep Grau-Garriga ont su faire évoluer la tapisserie vers un autre monde : d'une tapisserie figurative il est passé à une tapisserie en relief et abstraite jusqu'à aller vers une tapisserie-sculpture (ou tapisserie tri-dimensionnelle). Grau-Garriga a appris la tapisserie en 1958 auprès de Jean Lurçat.

Il a considéré que pour être une véritable œuvre d'art, la tapisserie devait être créée et tissée par l'artiste lui-même, comme ce fut le cas pour André Barreau (créateur-lissier). À l'Académie royale des beaux-arts de Bruxelles et à l'Académie des beaux-arts et des arts décoratifs de Tournai, il existe toujours un atelier de tapisserie où les étudiants-artistes peuvent profiter de métiers hautes-lices et basses-lices pour leur propre création.

European carpet

Oriental carpets began to appear in Europe as a result of the Crusades, in the eleventh century. Until the middle of the eighteenth century, they were mainly used as wall ornaments and on tables.

French carpets
When the French production of hand-knotted carpets began in 1608, on the initiative of Henry IV, it was the Turkish carpets that served as a model and the symmetrical knot was therefore used.
In 1628 production was moved to an abandoned soap factory on the outskirts of Paris hence the name Savonneri. The oldest carpets made at the Savonnerie are often called Louis XIII carpets, which is somewhat misleading since they were made during the regency years of the reign of Louis XIV. The carpets were densely decorated with flowers, often in vases or baskets, but there were also military motifs and architectural elements. The motifs were borrowed from textiles and paintings from Holland and Flanders.

oriental Rug

In Egypt, China or the Maya peoples, the technique of hand-knotting was discovered almost at the same time by several different peoples, independently of each other. One thing is certain, the main goal of the nomads was to create a carpet, to protect oneself from the cold by lining the tents with an object softer and warmer than simple animal skins.
It will be necessary to wait for a long century until almost our days, to see the function of a carpet pass from utilitarian object to true object of art. Although research has proven that even some twenty centuries ago, the carpet was already considered a rare and artistic object.

Persian rugs By tradition, Persia has always been considered the country of carpet craftsmanship, which is why the history of the oriental rug is inseparable from that of the Persian kingdom and its various fortunes.
After the Second World War, more and more carpets began to be exported to Europe, which became a very important source of income for Iran. Guarantee of quality, strict legislation, regulation of materials and prohibition of mechanical trades created a solid base for an even more intense development.
Following the oil boom of 1970, several factories were established in different regions of the country, but immediately, in the face of this industrialization, the prices of hand-knotted carpets increased considerably, improving the economic situation of Iran at the same time. .
Nowadays the still very high prices are no longer competitive, other Eastern countries supplying carpets of almost equal quality to Iran. But after so many years of tradition, the Persian rug retains all its wonders, charm and prestige.

Restoration-Conservation and Traditional Cleaning Workshop
antique and contemporary tapestries and rugs

When I am asked to restore a tapestry, my first instinct is to think about its future. Restore it? Yes, but for what? To pass on a heritage in good condition, rich in history? Of course, but still? Preserve as much as possible of the original materials or restore identically the
Designs and colors?
In our profession, nothing is so categorical. It is therefore necessary to carry out this reflection with the owner of the tapestry, and to define together what will best serve it.
Before making a choice, I note the damage suffered: cracked relays, faded colors, previous restorations more or less well done, dirty wools, broken chains, cooked silks, original or added edges, holes, etc...

    A deux pas de la Tour Eiffel , j’ai découvert un professionnel et passionné par son métier, j ai récupéré ma tapisserie , à laquelle je tenais beaucoup ; et je la retrouve encore plus belle, merci encore! J ai eu de très bon conseils et je compte revenir dès que j ai besoin. Je recommande cet atelier autant pour le lavage , la réparation, et le très bon accueil .

  • Pascal Roy


    Je connais ce magasin depuis des années et n'hésite jamais à y passer quand je suis dans le quartier.
    Le propriétaire, d'une gentillesse et d'une humilité rare, connait l'histoire de chacune de ses tapisseries et me fait voyager par ses récits. Certaines pièces rares sont à découvrir impérativement.
    Que ce soit pour un conseil, une réparation ou un achat, j'ai toujours été enchanté par le professionnalisme de M. André.
    Je recommande donc +++ et vous invite au voyage en poussant les portes de la galerie Lissier.
