Aubusson tapestry woven by the Picaud workshop.

Loewer designed his first cartoon in 1953 ; his early works are first figurative before turning to abstraction (like Matégot) which is exclusively geometric in Loewer’s case. He designed over 180 cartoons, most of which were woven by his friend, Raymond Picaud.
Around 1971-1972, Loewer’s style became more refined, with fewer geometric squares and a brighter, more contrasted use of colour. As is often the case with Loewer, this is a one-off piece.
