Apocalypse Tapestry at Angers Chateau Photos

The Tapestry of the Apocalypse, illustrating in 67 remaining scenes the Book of Revelation by John of Patmos, is housed in Angers Chateau in Angers France. The tapestry, commissioned (1370's) by Louis 1 of Anjou, contains both French & Belgian stylistic elements. It came close to ruin over the centuries, until restoration was started in the mid-19th century.
