La Recolte des Ananas 9103 - Medieval Tapestry
Woven in France from 50% wool; 40% cotton
Taken from a series known as “The Story of China”, this tapestry shows the Empress overseeing the harvest of exotic pineapples. The scene is distinctly Chinese, with a pagoda shown in the background. The farmers are hard at work, harvesting the fruit, which is a mix of native and non-European workers.
“La Recolte des Ananas” was believed to have been originally commissioned by Louis Alexandre de Bourbon, the son of Louis XIV. Six of the original 10 tapestries can be seen at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles. These tapestries, very exotic for the time, were initially made for the Rambouillet castle.

The scene is unlike anything the artist would have seen at the time,
so it’s likely the tapestry was woven sometime before the 1660s,
when Jesuits first returned from Asia with art
that included such exotic subject matter
that were to influence the royal courts of Europe.
Measures 58 x 58 inches.
Tapestry is backed with lining and tunnel for easy hanging.
Tapestries will look more elegant by hanging them with Tapestry Rods
