TAPESTRY, PROBABLY FROM A SERIES DEPICTING THE LIFE OF JACOB
Few losses and repairs.
This scene could be part of an unknown series of tapestries with Biblical depictions, in which patriarchs like Abraham and Jacob are often depicted as bearded old men. For comparison, cf. a tapestry on the Life of Abraham at Hampton Court (ca. 1545) and a tapestry on the Life of Jacob in Brussels (ca. 1535).
The border with the wide floral decoration is found on tapestries from the period between 1540 and 1560, and the motif can be found in both Brussels and Enghien.
