The Bayeux Tapestry: A Revolutionary New Interpretation

by Wolfgang Grape

The world-famous, 73 meter-long embroidery, depicting the Norman Conquest of England, is one of the most important and enigmatic works of art. It is now seen as much more of a milestone in Western art than had previously been thought. It demonstrates exceptional artistic experimentation in its depiction of everyday reality, nature, and contemporary issues. The dominant view up to now has been that the tapestry (actually an embroidery) was produced in England. Backed up by meticulous research, the author succeeds in revising this theory, brilliantly arguing the case the tapestry originated in Bayeux. The entire tapestry is illustrated in color in this beautiful book.
