FRAGMENT OF A TAPESTRY BORDER

Renaissance, Bruxelles, probably from the workshop of François Geubels, ca. 1560.
Allegorical representations of Generosity and Justice under a canopy, with three eagles on top. In an architectural frame.
167 × 66 cm.

Colors faded. Restorations.

The fragment on offer was part of the border of a large tapestry; very similar borders are found, for example, in the tapestries from a series about Romolus and Remus by François Geubels, which are on exhibit i.a. in the Kunsthistorische Museum in Vienna (Guy Delmarcel. La tapisserie flamande. Paris 1999, pp. 155ff.). In that tapestry, the group of figures is somewhat modified, and provided with a cartouche inscribed: "REGNVM AVTEN JVSTICIA ET LIBERALITATE".
