Description

Monumental tapestries.

Le Chant du Monde by Jean Lurçat, a work made up of ten monumental tapestries (347m²), pays tribute to the medieval wall hanging depicting the Apocalypse which is on display at the Château d'Angers.
Jean Lurçat made his personal discovery of this masterpiece in 1937 and this "encounter" had a decisive influence over his artistic activity. From 1957 onwards, the artist weaved his Chant du Monde ("Song of the World"). A vast textile symphony dealing with human destiny, the work begins with the bombing of Hiroshima, depicts man's conquest of space, and expresses the final victory of man living in harmony with the world and the elements.

You can also discover the work of Thomas Gleb, Jean Lurçat and Grau-Garriga at the museum.
