Tapestry As A Way of Life "All my life I considcrccl a pu1'nl1'ng, u rapt-slrjv, in fact the art, as a rnuuns of cornn1u111'cu!1'on with people, with our ft'HUll"l7lt'll, il Ls u 1111-yoj exchanging feelings and ideas.

" Jean Lurcat, 1960 The tapestries of the late Jean Lurcat do more than just convince their viewer - they grip, fascinate, and even haunt him. Brilliant colours, rich texture, and a choice of weird and mystical themes all contribute to the tremendous impact that Lurcat's tapestries have on anyone who looks at them. It was Lurcat who was largely responsible for reviving the almost forgotten art of tapestry weaving in the first place. He alone hadthe vision and imagination to see the vast possibilities weaving presented to contemporary art. He alone was able to see that tapestries need not be the placid, pretty and rather faded medium that it had been in the pastg but instead could become one of the most vibrant, exciting, and alive media that the artist could work through. Lurcat brought to his work not only a superb skill and understanding of weavingtechnique, but the compassionate sensitivity and knowledge of the nature of suffering which all great artists must possess in order to communicate with their public on a deep and sensitive plane. Lurcat fought in both World Wars, and was an active member of the French Underground during the Second World War. He was well acquainted, therefore, with the depths of human depravity and the height of human valour and courage. His tapestries reflect his experiences, and tell of his horror at human behaviour as well as his abiding faith in the goodness of man. Lurcat died just two years ago. But his fame is just beginning to sweep the world. I became acquainted with the works of Lurcat atashowing of his in Stratford, Ontario last month. The enthusiasm with which those Canadians who have seen his work have greeted it, could indicate that we shall be seeing more of it. If you get an opportunity to see some Lurcat tapestries, I urge you to grab it- once having been exposed to it, you will not soon forget the work ofJean Lurcat. - Mitchell Kelner P
