After a chance conversation between 2 friends there will be a rare tapestry on display at Castle Drogo in 2016.
The tapestry was bought in 2011 and will be on display from Monday 7 March.
It will be exhibited in the Dining Room along with a much older tapestry called The Char de Triomphe which was designed by Charles le Brun for Louis XIV to hang in the Palace of Versailles.
The tapestry is 15ft long and lucky fits in a window bay at the end of the room. Bryher Mason, House and Collection Manager comments, “We are delighted to have this opportunity to stimulate discussion about the medium of tapestry and how contemporary art allows us to see historic objects with new eyes”.
More details to follow shortly…..
