Mirò, Picasso... 

These tapestries come from collections specially designed and offered by Jules Pansu weavings. This magnificent technical and artistic work is carried out in collaboration between the Pansu workshops and the various estates of painters such as Miró and Picasso.

It is on the occasion of the 135th anniversary of the "Pansu" manufacture that the latter created the first unique collection of tapestries and cushions! The Jules Pansu house, recognized in 2012 as a Living Heritage Company, has thus established close links with the beneficiaries of the painters in order to respect as closely as possible the drawing and the original colors of the paintings. Indeed, it was necessary to choose the patterns that could be transposed from the canvas to the weaving while maintaining the strength of the colors and the purity of the lines. Thus, the craftsmen of the Pansu manufacture had to take up challenge after challenge. They succeeded in rendering the effect of the paint and the "stroke" of the brush by the effects of weaving and weft. This success was made possible thanks among other things to the workers of the factory, elected best workers in France.

All these tapestries are woven in the Jules Pansu workshops, in the north of France, on Jacquard looms. They are lined with a cotton canvas. A certificate of authenticity is stuck on the back of each tapestry. Composed of cottons or wools (depending on the model), these very modern tapestries are suitable for any interior and mainly for contemporary interiors.

Winner of the Grand Prix of the Venice Biennale in 1954, he was also awarded the Gold Medal for Merit in Fine Arts in Spain in 1980. Like the painting "Woman, Bird, Star", his works include on stage, sometimes with simplicity and sometimes with complexity, various elements: characters, animals, celestial bodies ...

  • Picasso's tapestries

    Spanish artist, Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) spent his adolescence in Barcelona. He keeps his initial training between the fine arts (in Llotja), academicism and modernism. It was following a trip and a solo exhibition in Paris where Pablo Picasso developed his own style: a sensitive, melancholy and even miserable painting. Recognized, Picasso testifies to his attachment to Barcelona, ​​by signing in 1917, "The promenade of Columbus", between figuration, cubism and anecdote.

    Today, we find these canvases in the form of tapestries. The latter are produced as closely as possible to reality thanks to the Jules Pansu manufacture and in collaboration with the Picasso estate.
