Museum of Fine Art and Dentelle Alençon, France
Le Tapis de Sigmund, based on a model by the artist Anne Deguelle, is the last work in Alençon lace executed by the lace-makers of the National Workshop op the Point d'Alençon. This masterpiece is the largest piece of Point d'Alençon lace executed by the Mobilier National to date. Its exceptional dimensions, the density and complexity of its iconographic program challenged the lacemakers for 10 years. It is presented for the first time to the public, accompanied by all the production documents allowing to apprehend the delicate work of interpretation of the lacemakers from the cartoons of contemporary artists.
The exhibition is made in partnership with Mobilier National.
