France-Romania Season 2019 at the Louvre Museum
Liturgical Textiles of Byzantine Tradition
We don’t tend to think of fabric when we think about artwork. We head to art exhibitions to see artwork and paintings from the old masters on canvas. We go to photography exhibitions to see large prints. We may also take a look at sculpture in bronze and ceramic. But, the detail and beauty of fabric are often left out. This is no longer the case in the Louvre, as this spring sees a new exhibition that focuses on the liturgical fabrics of Romania.
This year, Paris is celebrating a series of shows in a France-Romania season. The season celebrates the beginning of this country as we know it, and should bring many interesting pieces of Romanian art to the city. The star of this Romanian show is the Saint George Battle Flag, which is joined by other beautifully embroidered pieces from the mid 15th to mid 17th century. The show starts on April 17th and continues until July 29th.
