Unique piece, Circa 1975.

Born in 1937, Daniel Drouin became an important textile artist, notably in the creation of tapestries. Early on he apprenticed at the famous tapestry workshops of Gobelins. Later, he went back to his village in the south of France, Venasque, where he taught the art and craft of the loom.

“Passacaille”, a unique piece, references a rhythmic Spanish dance; the woven image evokes an abstracted view of the classical flamingo guitar.
