Bouquet orange (orange bouquet)

 

 

Aubusson tapestry woven in the Legoueix workshop.
With label signed by the artist, n°3/6.
Circa 1980.

 

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.

The theme of the bouquet is omnipresent in Chaye’s work ; it allows him seasonal or chromatic associations of great decorative value.
