    The Museum of Fine Arts of Carcassonne is pleased to unveil its next temporary exhibition "TAPISSER! E" which will be held from December 17, 2021 to March 19, 2022. After "The Future Is Now" by contemporary photographer Philippe SHANGTI, which brought together more with 22,000 visitors, the city's fine arts museum offers its visitors a new original exhibition. “TAPISSER! E” will present around twenty textile works, loans of national furniture, the International City of Aubusson tapestry and the Pinton workshops. Visitors will be able to admire the works of great artists such as Delaunay, Hartung, Le Corbusier, Léger, Miro and more to discover! Known since Antiquity, the technique of tapestry developed in the middle of the Middle Ages. The walls of the castles are dressed in these woolen images, real narrative scenes. First of all a useful insulating object, it gradually becomes a distinctive sign of the wealth of their owners. In the 17th century, the birth of the French royal factories made it possible to raise this technique to the rank of art. And it is now the academic painters who provide the boxes of tapestries. The most famous paintings of the century are woven and adorn the most beautiful residences in Europe. At the same time, research into pigments allows the tapestry to imitate painting, thanks to a richer color palette. Having become a heritage know-how, it was not until the 1940s that artists reappropriated this artistic heritage. The works specially selected for this exhibition, woven between 1940 and 1970, show the attachment of these artists to wanting to exploit this ancestral technique.
