Survol (flying over)
Aubusson tapestry woven in the Glaudin-Brivet workshop.
Complete with label signed by the artist, n°EA.
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,…) whence he came.
These compositions “as the bird flies” are typical of the artist.
