Le clos des rois (The king’s enclosed plot)

 

Aubusson tapestry woven in the Tabard workshop.

Henri Ilhe, who came to the design of tapestry cartoons late on in his career, still managed to produce from 1964 onwards a considerable number (more than 120, all woven by the Tabard workshop) in an urbane style, incorporating birds and butterflies sporting in and around the gnarled branches of trees and bushes.
