Description:
Lot 86: Jean Lurçat (French, 1892-1966) LE TAURERGOT, 1949 Description: signed in the weave lower left Notes: Jean Lurçat was one of the finest tapestry designers of his time and his innovations in the craft were widely practised in France. His influence on the work of Irish artist Louis le Brocquy - who was introduced to the medium in 1948 courtesy of the Edinburgh Tapestry Weavers - cannot be overstated. In 1949 Lurçat's Aubusson tapestry Jardin Des Coqs was included in the 1949 Irish Exhibition of Living Art in Dublin. Le Brocquy, writing for Ark Magazine Royal College of Art, London almost a decade later in 1956 describes Lurçat's work and its virtues thus: "Lurçat method of designing, already widely practised in France, has given new life to French tapestry, now more joyous and frank, more durable and economic than at any time since the end of the 16th century, when resistance to Renaissance idiom finally collapsed. His reconstituted technique imposes no particular style on the designer, as may be seen by comparing the quantity of stylistically varied work recently produced at Aubusson. It is essentially a return to medieval ways. In one form or another it represents the only practical and economic way of producing 'a very large work of woven and coloured wools': a tapestry. For any designer who has made a cartoon by this direct method of Lurçat and by the indirect, copy-a-painting method of, shall we say, Boucher, there can be no remaining doubt in eye or in mind as to the superiority of the former when comparing the two resultant tapestries. Only those can remain obdurate who insist on the virtue of cleverly and laboriously translating paint scumbles into weft". Accompanied by a copy of a letter to the prsent owner from the Musée Departemental de la Tapisserie, Aubusson. 'Le Taurergot' is a word invented by Lurçat and alludes to both the bull and the cock, two animals frequently depicted in his oeuvre. The Tabard workshop records mention of two versions of this work, both woven in 1949. The first sold in Sweden, the second is the present lot. Provenance: Eric Pillon Enchères, Calais, France, 12 March 2000, lot 289 as 'Le Coq'; Private Collection deVeres, 3 March 2001, lot 149; Private Collection Dimensions: h:71 w:56in.

Jean Lurcat, (1892 - 1966) was a French artist and designer most notable for reviving the art of tapestry weaving in the 20th Century. During the 1930's, Lurcat turned from being primarily a painter to designing tapestries. In 1939 he established a centre for the making of contemporary tapestries in the French town of Aubusson, historically associated with tapestry weaving since the 16th Century. Amongst his most notable works is L’Apocalypse (1948) commissioned for the Church of Notre Dame de Toute-Grace du Plateau d’Assy. Artist resale right maybe payable on this lot if hammer price is above the threshold of approximately £800 (depending on current exchange rate) up to a maximum of 4% of the hammer price.
