16th Century Brussels Tapestry, featuring Julius Caesar Crossing the Rubicon, possibly from the court of King Henry VIII
NEW YORK, NY — Persian Gallery New York has been all over the news with the recent discovery that one the antique tapestries from our collection, a piece depicting Julius Caesar Crossing the Rubicon, might possibly be one of the originals commissioned by King Henry VIII for his palace at Hampton Court!
The saga began with an inquiry from the renowned British writer and historian, Mary Beard, who was doing research for her upcoming book on Roman iconography in tapestries and other art forms, and came across the image of this tapestry online.
She soon came to New York to see the tapestry in person, along with a colleague who is a historian and archaeologist, and together, they determined that our Julius Caesar tapestry bears a remarkable likeness to King Henry's original from the mid 1500s. Thus began an investigation to determine whether our Julius Caesar tapestry is truly the original one woven for Henry VIII's royal court, or if perhaps it was a later, secondary or tertiary copy of the original.
