Art Tapestries

Art tapestries are at the core of woven tapestries. Chronologically, these range from medieval tapestries to contemporary art including all the great art movements. In our blog we discuss and illustrate medieval, Old Masters and renaissance masterpieces, Francois Boucher and elegant French designs, Pre-Raphaelites and Arts and Crafts, Impressionism and Art Nouveau, through to the modern designs of today.

It is no accident that we called ourselves Tapestry Art Designs!
