Tapestry "Vase Empire"

The Empire style became popular in France at the end of the 18th century and was an accurate mirror for that epoch: Representative strictness and celebrations corresponded to the self-perception of the French as undisputed great power of the Continent. Its charm consists until today in its combination of decorative opulence and formal strictness, clearly visible also on this tapestry with a bowl of apples in a medallion.

Tapestry as elaborate reproduction of wool, cotton and polyester. Format 110 x 150 cm.

Epochal term for the art of the 17th century. Baroque art style that emanated from Rome in 1600 permeated fine arts, literature and music practically all over Europe within a very short time and lasted until 1770 in the fine arts. The last phase is generally characterized by the rococo.

Characteristic features include: the pulsating movement of all forms, the abolition of boundaries between architecture, painting and sculpture, that resulted in typical for the era synthesis of the arts, and especially in specific handling of light, which became an important artistic component. The subordination of the part to the whole led to the emergence of a single and, at the same time, dynamic space, which comes into full effect in the magnificent buildings of its time.

The Baroque art, with its tendency towards greatness, magnificence and rushing abundance clearly reflects the desire for representation, which was a concern of secular and ecclesiastical, especially Catholic customers strengthened through Counter-Reformation of that time. In painting, characteristic features of the Baroque, are manifested in the altar and ceiling painting, history and portrait.

The area of the sculpture is typically represented by such artists as Anthony van Dyck, Peter Paul Rubens, Gian Lorenzo Bernini and others.
