Taken from the painting Interlude by Sir William Reynolds-Stephens (1862-1943). Many of the artist’s works are in public buildings, for which they were designed. From the detailed work and composition, one can see clearly how the artist was as much a sculpture as a painter. This painting continues the tradition of the neoclassicists. The title tells the story perfectly of a group of women resting in peace and quiet before resuming their daily duties. The picture is both romantic and spiritual and has proved to be, perhaps, the most famous of all the paintings produced by the artist.
Traditional Tapestries were established in 1991 by husband and wife team, Colin and Catherine. Their workshops and office complex utilise a large converted barn nestling in the Cornish countryside. They are family business employing a local skilled workforce.
All of the tapestry panels and fabrics are imported direct from Master Flemish Weavers, who use modern electronic Jacquard looms utilizing the latest computer technology to create the finest high quality designs. Many designs are reproduced from ancient medieval tapestries, although several new creations are inspired from contemporary art forms. The unfinished tapestry panels are then sent to the UK where they are made into elegant wall tapestries, cushions and bags.
