Plaisirs d’automne (Autumn pleasures)
Aubusson tapestry woven by the Pinton workshop.
Complete with certificate of origin signed by the artist.
Perrot began his career as a cartoon designer at the end of the war, making almost 500 cartoons including numerous commissions from the state, most of which were woven at Aubusson. His style which is particularly rich and decorative is eminently recognisable : a crowd of butterflies or birds, most often, stands out against a background of vegetation, reminiscent of the millefleurs tapestries (which would also inspire Dom Robert).
Perrot’s habitual decorative style illustrates in this example the variety of “Autum pleasures” : hunting, on a brown background, associates game ready for plucking and seasonal fruit (grapes, pears…) ready for picking, the sky blue background decorated with flowers and living birds proposes, for its part, the pleasures of an autumnal walk in the sun.
