This tapestry was created from a photograph that I took of a detail of the garden landscape and fountain Favrile-glass mosaic ca. 1915 by Louis C. Tiffany that is on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art – New York City.
Tiffany’s work in mosaic, inspired by Byzantine examples he had seen abroad, dates to the 1880’s when he began experimenting with iridescent glass and transparent tesserae backed with metal leaf. Mosaic decoration graced countless interiors by him, from churches to department stores. The culmination of his interest was the vast “Dream Garden” mosaic, created in 1915, after designs by Maxfield Parrish, for Edward Bok at the Curtis Publishing Company in Philadelphia. Tiffany may have made this shimmering garden landscape as a preliminary study for the Curtis commission. It was among the decorations that graced the Tiffany showrooms until their contents were auctioned in 1938.

Details on how to prep your fabric tapestry for hanging and install the hangers:
Made from Linen Cotton Canvas, the wall hangings combine a magnetic framing kit with a hand-sewn fabric tapestry. The framing kits use a magnetic closure for easy tapestry installation, making them the ideal way to update your displayed art with the seasons. Tapestries are printed on the face side and feature a 3/8” double-folded hem and topstitching thread chosen from a limited color set to best match the design. The mounting kit includes both white cotton cord and foam tape, providing versatile installation options.
Wall hangings are shipped unassembled. Before hanging, give your tapestry a quick iron on the reverse side. When installing the tapestry in the hanger, the back bar should nest within the seam allowance, allowing only one layer of fabric to sit between the magnets.
