The Devonshire Hunting Tapestries.

If the documentation were complete, it is most likely that it would reveal an annual work programme, with the volume of work reflecting the perceived need of the collection by the king’s arrasmaker and the keepers of the wardrobes. Where the documentation survives, it highlights significant levels of time and money being invested in both repairing and lining tapestries. While the systems for documenting and recording the condition of tapestries within Henry VIII’s household were prone to inconsistencies in the level of detail recorded, they still succeeded in making the collection useable and highlighted problems as they occurred.

Some regional variations are apparent; for example, the use of strapping as a support technique is far more common in the USA than in Europe. Techniques of tapestry conservation continue to be largely dependent on the context of the tapestry. Tapestries may be displayed in historic houses or private homes, in civic or commercial buildings, in museums or in churches; an approach which is selected for a tapestry in one situation may not be the most appropriate for another. The contributions to this book demonstrate that tapestries conserved for historic houses may be treated in a different way from those intended to be displayed in museums of fine and decorative arts where the quality of the image may be considered paramount.
