Fine tapestry panel from Gobelins (France), mid 17th century Dimensions : Height : 320cm ; 230cm. Technical characteristics : In wool and silk. (Remise à la taille dans la bordure haute, petites restaurations) "Narcissus and Echo" Narcissus, armed, armored and richly dressed, accompanied by his dogs, after a hard day of hunting, wants to quench his thirst with the fresh water of a magnificent antique fountain. Under the gaze of the nymph Echo, who was in love with him and whom Narcissus had spurned, he suddenly falls in admiration of her face, which he discovers, for the first time, in the reflection of the water that sparkles in the trough. Fallen madly in love with his image, he will not stop admiring himself, going to the point of withering and death. Echo could not hide his trouble and repeated endlessly the word "Alas! Hélas! " This scene takes place at the bend of a forest in the shelter of a thick foliage that serves as a setting for three birds, including a pheasant and an oak jay. Figurative molded border with a series of oves, enriched with flowering bouquets and allegories of the hunt. Beautiful freshness and great finesse.
