TAPESTRY BOOKS

Unfortunately there isn’t much information available on modern tapestries. A good short primer, FINE ART TAPESTRIES IN THE 20TH CENTURY, is available for sale from the Jane Kahan Gallery.  This booklet was written by the gallery’s former Director, Charles Mathes, an art appraiser and consultant who now advises clients on the purchase of tapestries.

Thomas Campbell, now the head of the Metropolitan Museum has written several books on older tapestries for the Museum’s blockbuster tapestry exhibitions.
