Ville de Paris (1943)

Artist: Hugo Grygkar

Year: 1943

Literature: from Monde d’Hermes No. 48

Note: Due to restrictions during WWII, this carre was made in wool.

The banner on the top reads “Icy est le vray pourtraict naturel de la ville, cite, universite de Parisy” (true portrait of the town, city and university of Paris)

The carre is a map of Renaissance Paris in 1576.

Note: looks like all the pics/scans for this entry have dead links. I will have to redo all the pics in the next few months.
