Henry VIII and the Abraham Tapestries Sue Jackson Wednesday 10 April 2019

The story of Abraham is a series of ten tapetries commissioned by Henry VIII and made in Brussels in the mid 16th century. The series depicts scenes from the life of the prophet Abraham and has both historically and contemporarily been considered one of the finest pieces of decorative artwork from the period.
