Tapestry of Diana

Tapestry of Diana

2016 Restoration Pledge

This magnificent tapestry was woven between 1728 and 1740 and is based on the design of Pierre-Josse Perrot and was presented to the Duke of Nivernois in 1748 upon his departure to Rome. The tapestry celebrates the hunt, a popular pastime during this time. The tapestry is made of wool and silk with golden and silver threads and is approximately 12 feet by 9 feet.  The Tapestries and Textile Restoration laboratory of the Vatican Museums was responsible for the restoration in 2016. The piece is on display in the Room of Solomon in St. John Lateran at the Lateran Palace.
