Jean Lurcat is a painter, ceramist, and designer of French tapestry. His notoriety is largely due to the work of tapestries and its new language. 1937 is a key date when he discovers the Apocalypse tapestry and where he settled in Aubusson with Gromaire Dubreuil and to try to revive the tapestry that, at the time, suffered a severe crisis. He chose to reduce the number of colors (the weavers in Aubusson used nearly 3,000 tons) by retaining only 44 mostly dark colors.

During the war, Lurçat multiplied the quoted tapestries as if the image and its symbols remained impotent to an exhaustive expression. They also testify to his privileged links in the intellectual and literary circles of the time.

The recourse (and fidelity) to the Apollinaire of the “Calligrammes” also makes it possible to play on the “drawing” of the text. Fairly close to “Liberty” after Eluard, preserved in the museum of Angers, an iconic tapestry of the spirit of the Resistance: yellow background with clouds, sun irradiating divided into compartments, text… while this one, is more pacified, less political, which allows Lurçat to develop its own cosmogony.
