Weaving Colour

Tapestries from Calder, Delaunay, Miró...
The Museum of Lodeve is showing a selection of tapestries, made between 1960 and 1970, from the French National Furniture Collection. Made from designs by Calder, Delaunay, Miró and le Corbusier these large-scale works – up to five metres long – reveal the universe of these artists who were at both the heart and cutting edge of abstraction. This exhibition illustrates a decisive moment in the history of the workshops of Gobelins and Beauvais. In the sixties, the arrival of André Malraux as minister for Cultural Affaires breathed new life into the National Furniture Collection. For the first time, manufacturers employed well-known artists and consulted them at all stages of a project. The results are these powerful pieces, developed as unique co-creations between artist and weaver.
