French tapestries on display at National Art Museum and MNAC

French tapestries from the Gobelins National Manufacture collection, dating from the 1600s to the 1800s and from 1950 to present day, will be on display at the National Museum of Art of Romania (MNAR) as of December 9 and, respectively, the National Museum of Contemporary Art (MNAC), as of December 8, until February 26. The event is organized by the French Embassy and the French Institute.

Romanian art-lovers will have the chance to retrace for the first time in Romania the avatars of this art throughout the centuries: from historical tapestries commissioned by the kings of France to modern tapestries inspired by the works of Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Le Corbusier, Joan Miro and many others. The exhibition at MNAR includes a selection of 20 works, some of the finest tapestries woven in Gobelins between the early 17th century and the dawn of the 19th.
