Aubusson tapestry woven in the Andraud workshop.
With signed label, n°2/6.
A student of Léon Detroy, Gaston Thiéry is one of the last representatives of the Crozant school of painting.
Established in the Creuse region of France, he started working on tapestries in 1965 with the Andraud workshop for whom he designed cartoons inspired by the local flora, in a decorative style which can be situated somewhere between that of Dom Robert and Maingonnat, a world away from his landscape paintings which were strongly influenced by the impressionists.
This design (a reference to the lake “la Gabrière” in L’Indre) illustrates the artist’s naturalistic style : a modern tapestry can be the depiction of an animated landscape.
