TAPESTRY D'ENTRES DEUX "ALLEGORY OF WEALTH"
Repairs and restorations, probably somewhat shortened in height.
A decree by the city of Brussels from 1528 obliged the producers of tapestries to mark the products with the city marks as well as with a mark of the manufacturer or purchaser (these are missing on the tapestry on offer). The decree became an Imperial edict in 1544, obliging other centers to adopt a city mark as well. Cf. Guy Delmarcel, La Tapisserie Flamande, Paris 1999. p. 362.
Comparable tapestries from this series can be found in Madrid and Vienna.
