Tapestry from Aubusson “Eclosion”

This is a tapestry woven in the workshop of Pierre Legoueix and signed by an artist named “S. Chaye”. The title of the tapestry is “Eclosion,” which means “Blossoming” or “Hatching” in German.

As previously mentioned, Pierre Legoueix was a French artist who lived and worked in the 20th century and was known for his work in Aubusson tapestry.

Simon CHAYE tapestry from Aubusson, woven by the workshop of Pierre Legoueix. With signed label around 1960.

In 1953, Jean Picart le Doux suggested that Chaye become his assistant and encouraged him to design Gobelin cartoons. He created numerous bucolic caricatures, as well as views of Normandy (Mont Saint Michel, Honfleur, regattas, etc.), where he originated from.

Here you can see a very typical work of this artist who specialized in trees, plants, and birds.

Aubusson tapestries are known for their high quality and artistic design. If the tapestry is indeed from the workshop of Pierre Legoueix and signed by a well-known artist, it may have considerable value. However, it is important to note that the value of a tapestry depends on many factors, such as its condition, age, size, and rarity. If you want to determine the exact value of the tapestry, I recommend having it appraised by an expert who is able to make an accurate assessment of the artwork.
