Tapestries at the Residenz Museum in Munich

This past October I had the good fortune of visiting the Residenz Museum in Munich. While we were there I kept my companions waiting for ages while I pored over the dozens of spectacular tapestries in the rooms. Here are just a few of them.

  1. These are wonderful pictures of wonderful tapestries.

    If I may, though, I was wondering whether you knew anything in particular about Peter Candid, or had any books with information on him. I’ve been frantically searching, and I just bought three books by Brigitte Volk-Knuttel, but information has been remarkably scarce.

    If you do happen to know of anything or own any books, I’d love to have some information or scans of pages.

    Thanks.
