Tapisserie de la Genese

1 review of Tapisserie de la Genese

Warm colors and spirituality


The Romanesque walls of the church of the Abbaye aux Dames are covered with a series of contemporary tapistry. Modern designs give the medieval monument grandiosity, and create a beautiful harmony of colors. Thirteen tapestries, designed by the painter Jen-Francois Favre, are devoted to the subject of the creation of the world. The 3m x 1.8m works are identified with a small explanatory text. A beautiful set!
