Textile Art Masterpieces: Tapestries and Embroideries in the Zaleski Collection


Curated by Moshe Tabibnia and Elisabetta Mero

Texts by Nello Forti Grazzini, Chiara Buss, and Gianluca Bovenz

This book provides a full picture of the Zaleski Collection as it was in early 2014, and therefore includes all the additions made since the beginning of its formation in the 1990s. Indeed, this is one of the largest and finest private collections in Europe. As such, it can be regarded as an anthology of the most beautiful and interesting historic textile artefacts that appeared on the international antique market in recent years.

The volume is divided into three parts. The first one comprises introductory texts presenting the collection as a whole. The second part contains the catalogue entries. Finally, the third part includes analytical data sheets complementing the catalogue entries.

Through the mostly unpublished analysis of nearly 80 splendid art pieces, the authors brought to light elements offering new perspectives for the study of antique textile artefacts. Furthermore, their essays disclosed the history and manufacturing techniques of the tapestries and embroideries examined.
