Tapestry, Gobelins from Erich Engelbrecht (selection)

TAPESTRY

At the suggestion of his wife, Erich Engelbrecht started working on tapestries and explored this special kind of artistic creation and manufacture.
Over the course of time, as a former engineer and industrial consultant, he and a professional colleague developed and built a large-scale hydraulic weaving device that takes up an entire room in his studio.
In order to obtain bright, lightfast colours, he set up a yarn dyeing facility in his workshop.
All tapestries are woven according to the method of the old manufacture Gobelins.
His tapestries reproduce both his own old paintings or sculptures from the 1960s and new works from the 1970s, 1980s and early 1990s. Production ceased shortly after the first Gulf War.
