This incredible Antique Italian Sucre de Herb Tapestry by artist Lago depicts the Madonna with the Infant Jesus in her lap accompanied by two angels, and exhibits subtle yet varied coloration typical of the genre, where dyes and paints are made from various herbs and fruits to skillfully create an image on linen and other woven fabrics, resulting in exquisite works of art such as this well-preserved example.  The result is a tapestry like effect, but with more of a hand-painted detail prized by collectors.
Circa 1910-1920
Measures 45H x 68W
