Unique Series of Tapestries
This series of six tapestries, which ranks among the most precious exhibits of the City Gallery, can be found on display inside the Primatial Palace. The tapestries were woven at the royal tapestry works in the English town of Mortlake, near London, in the 1630s. They are based on designs by the German artist Francis Cleyn and depict scenes from Greek mythology, in this case the tragic love of Hero, priestess of Aphrodite, for the young Leander.
