Simon CHAYE

les oiseaux (birds)

 

 

Aubusson tapestry woven in the Legoueix workshop.
n°4/6.
Circa 1970.

 

 

 

It was in 1953 that Jean Picart le Doux proposed to Chaye to become his assistant and encouraged him to design tapestry cartoons : he would produce numerous bucolic cartoons, but also views of Normandy (Mont Saint Michel, Honfleur, regattas,…) whence he came.

Here birds and trelliswork cohabit in a style very reminiscent of Picart le Doux.
