Charissa Bremer David and Pascal-Francois Bertrand co-authored an article that was just published in the May 2022 issue of the Burlington Magazine.
‘In 1764, at a time when the Royal Tapestry Manufactory at Beauvais was short of work, its directors, Laurent and André-Charlemagne Charron, initiated the weaving of small tapestry panels based on designs by François Boucher. Intended as inexpensive, independent works of art, they were in essence a short-lived marketing venture. Records of their weaving in the firm’s payment registers allow a number of surviving examples to be identified.’
