Los Honores: Flemish Tapestries for the Emperor Charles V

£25.00

Product description

Los Honores (The Honours) by Guy Delmarcel - a monograph published to coincide with the exhibition of the tapestries held in Mechelen in the Summer of 2000 - constitutes a product of extensive research on one particular tapestry set woven on the occasion of the coronation of Charles V as the Holy Roman Emperor at Aachen in 1520. The author provides a wealth of information on the context of the commission and use of this 9-piece ensemble, its manufacturer, Pieter van Aelst, who also created the famous Sistine Chapel tapestries designed by Raphael for Pope Leo X, and the tradition of the of the "mirror of princes" that informs the Los Honores iconography. Their thorough cleaning and restoration returned them to the splendour of their original appearance. The exhibition, which opened with a selection of paintings, books, and other objects produced and used in the vicinity of the weavings, exhibited the tapestries to full advantage.
