Philippe HECQUET

La mousson (Monsoon)

 

Aubusson tapestry woven by the Hamot workshop.
With signed label, n°1/8.
Circa 1980.

 

A painter of weaving cartoons, a master-weaver, director of the Hamot manufacture at Aubusson where he wove most notably Sheila Hicks : the multiple talents of  Hecquet are undeniable. That of painter-cartonnier which began at the end of the 1960’s, remains however one of the less well-known, as is the case for numerous other artists of the same generation.
