Brussels, possibly by Jan II Raes, first quarter 17th century
HISTORICAL TAPESTRY

Catalogue Note

The borders on this tapestry are very similar to those on a set of The Story of Decius Mus in the Spanish Royal collection that are signed by Jan II Raes and Jacob II Geubels (d. 1629) (in P. Junquera de Vega and C. Diaz Gallegos, Catalogo de Tapices del Patrimonio Nacional, Madrid, 1986, vol. II, cat. 52, pp. 89-97). Jan II Raes is also known to have used identical borders on other tapestry sets. Raes belonged to one of the most important Brussels weaver's dynasties active between 1580 and 1650. He was granted the privileges in 1613 and 1629 and was burgomaster of Brussels 1634-35 (G. Delmarcel, Flemish Tapestry, Tielt, 1999, p. 368).
