Exhibitions : Les Gobelins 1607-2007

This exhibition is divided into three sections and presents a selection of masterpieces representing its old collections and also a selection of contemporary creations from the last ten years. The first section evokes the origin of the three factories (Gobelins, Beavais and Savonnerie) through various royal orders based around the exceptional cycle of fifteen tapestries depicting Artemis. The second section is dedicated to modern creations from 1997-2007 and illustrates the creative vitality that the institution encourages in the fields of design, carpet weaving and tapestry.
