Description
Jean Gobelin, a scarlet dyer, set up on the banks of the Bièvre in 1440. In 1667, Colbert brought together tapestry, cabinet-making and goldsmiths workshops to form the Manufacture Royale des Meubles de la Couronne. The name Gobelins thus became famous throughout the courts of Europe.
As well as the Gobelins tapestry factories using high-warp looms, the site also houses a part of the low-warp looms from Beauvais, established in Paris in 1940, and tapestry from la Savonnerie, brought together at Les Gobelins in 1825. At the rate of 1 m² of tapestry per year and per high-warp loom, tapestry making continues in the traditional way.
The Galerie des Gobelins, which is under the authority of the Mobilier National & Manufactures Nationales des Gobelins, de Beauvais et de la Savonnerie, reopened to the public on 12 May 2007.
Running along the Avenue des Gobelins with architecture characteristic of the early 20th century, the Galerie des Gobelins has, since its construction, displayed the collections from the Mobilier National and works from the royal factories. The building, built by Jean-Camille Formigé from 1910 to 1913, replaced the former Musée des Gobelins whose rooms as well as several workshops were burned during the Commune (1871). The gallery, closed to the public since 1972, has just reopened after renovation works and displays temporary exhibitions of ancient and contemporary art related to the Mobilier national, the royal factories and art professions.
