Room 94: Tapestries

Tapestries, room 94

Room 94 is dominated by three of the Hunting Tapestries once owned by the 6th Duke of Devonshire. Made between 1425 and 1450, probably in Arras in Flanders (modern Belgium) they are a rare survival of a luxury art and are among the museum's greatest treasures. Their importance lies not only in the lively and dramatic scenes depicted but also in the details of the privileged life of the wealthy.

Room 94 is on Level 3 of the V&A South Kensington.
