The Art of Tapestries can be dated back to 1500 BC, with remnants from the Egyptians preserved in museums. This luxurious form of art made it's way through history with ancient Chinese, Greeks, and throughout the Renaissance period. During the 14th to 17th centuries, France was instrumental in perfecting tapestries. Throughout the Medieval and Renaissance periods tapestries began to flourish and become popular among royalty and the elite. Also, everyday people began to relish in the luxury with many weaving tapestries themselves. In our modern world we have found that the charm of tapestries can add a classic touch to our homes, restaurants, and places of business. Today, weavers are creating a huge array of tapestries from old world to contemporary styles. The evolution of tapestries made their mark in the art profession, allowing more people to own and have access to great works of art that only a few were able to view before their existence. The tapestry industry today also revived the splendid art works of distinguished artists such as Monet, Van Gogh, Michael Angelo, Renoir, and many others. Past and present artists' works such as Robert Pejman contribute to the wide variety of tapestry designs available today. Wall tapestries are inspired by museum originals, history, legends and master artists.
