By the 14th century, Flemish weavers had established themselves as the superiors in the creation of elegant tapestries and their surviving masterworks are still considered the finest to date. This exquisite 19th-century Flemish pictorial tapestry was modeled after the artworks of Flemish genre painter David Teniers the Younger. Woven in warm earth tones, this commanding work depicts peasants bowling outside of a tavern. Named after Teniers, these Teniéres tapestries accurately depict life in the 17th century, particularly the various aspects of peasant activity- a genre which Teniers became famous for.

Circa 1850

David Teniers the Younger (1610-1690) was the most distinguished member of a large family of painters. Considered to be the most prolific Flemish artist of the Baroque period, he studied and often collaborated with his father, David Teniers I, but by far the largest influences on his art were the darker, sometimes violent peasant scenes of Adriaen Brouwer. In 1633, Teniers became a master of the Antwerp Guild of St. Luke after his apprenticeship to his father. Teniers quickly became one of Antwerp's pace-setting and most successful painters. By 1647, he had received numerous commissions, including that by the Archduke Leopold William, Governor of the southern Netherlands. In 1651, the Archduke appointed Teniers as his court painter, tapestry designer and painting curator. His multiple careers brought him wealth and eventually a patent of nobility.

Teniers' distinguished style achieved full maturity during the period between 1640 and 1650 with his brilliant renditions of crowd scenes in open landscapes and figures characterized by a warm, human, and often humorous touch.
