The art of European tapestry was revitalized in the early 20th century by the avant-garde. The German Bauhaus was foundational in this renewal, with the ideas and techniques developed there proving deeply influential on later modernist movements. In France, designers incorporated new modalities and aesthetics while also looking back to the country’s artistic heritage, including five hundred years of tapestry arts. Artists and designers in Scandinavia created the most innovative and expressive forms in 20th century tapestry weaving—it was in the north that modern tapestry reached its apex.
