Tapestry, wool and silk, one of two Verdures, Flemish, c. 1640-1660. A landscape with large trees at either side, plants and leaves in the foreground, and a distant view to a group of buildings in the centre. Twisted Solomonic columns with reliefs of vine leaves form the side borders, and at the top garlands of fruit hang against a carved lintel with a blue cartouche in the centre.
