Oiseaux (Birds)


Aubusson tapestry woven in the Legoueix workshop.
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,…) from whence he came.


Here is a thoroughly characteristic cartoon of this artist who specialises in pastures, hedges and woodland scenes animated with animal life.
