- Product Info
The high point of Zecchins endeavors as a painter was reached in 1914 with his opulent 30-meter-long (100-foot) series of a dozen canvases entitled Le Mille e una Notta (One Thousand and One Nights) depicting the procession of Aladdin and his fabulous, gift-bearing entourage of eastern princes and princesses, arriving to seek the hand of the Sultans daughter. These were commissioned for the dining room of the Hotel Terminus in Venice, but later, alas, scattered between diverse public and private collections. Ca Pesaro presently owns half of the One Thousand and One Nights panels. This tapestry is based upon one of these panels.
This tapestry has a rod pocket incorporated in the lining on the back for hanging.
