The Promenade with 2 figures
Scenes from Lordly Life tapestries
The Promenade with 2 figures tapestry is a fine mille fleurs tapestry from the series of six tapestries called La tenture de la Vie Seigneuriale. These Scenes from Lordly Life tapestries were woven in Brussels in about 1520. This tapestry shows two of the five beautifully dressed people in front of the mille fleurs (thousand flowers) background of such flowers as marigolds, speedwell, hyacinths, daisies, periwinkles, violets, pansies and Solomon’s seals.
The Promenade (The Walk) is one of our favourite medieval tapestries so we were delighted to see it at the Musée National du Moyen Âge (Cluny Museum) in Paris. Today it is woven in Belgium in 89% cotton and 11% polyester and is lined, with a rod pocket for easy hanging. You can also purchase the full Promenade tapestry with five figures or a detail with just the lady on the left side.
