THE VALOIS TAPESTRIES
The Valois Tapestries are comprised of a series of eight tapestries woven with silk, wool and gold and silver thread and dated around 1575. They are based on designs by Antoine Caron, who in 1561 had been appointed the court painter by Catherine de’ Medici, queen of France, and her husband, Henry II. Seven of the tapestries are in need of restoration, but “The Bayonne Tournament” was restored between 1998 – 2003 with funding from the Italian government and our sister and founding organization in Italy, Amici degli Uffizi. Catherine’s granddaughter, Christina of Lorraine, brought the tapestries to Florence in 1589 as part of her dowry for her future husband, Grand Duke Ferdinando I de’ Medici. At that time, their recorded value was 3,250 scudi, the equivalent of about one million dollars today.
