Woven tapestry panel with a figure of Christ. The figure of Christ is looking left and has brown beard and long hair. He wears a red robe and blue cloak. Le Blon was a painter who attempted to develop a new weaving technique for making tapestries. He created this picture of the head of Christ using a method he patented in 1727. However, he abandoned the process when it proved unprofitable. Many people of Huguenot descent did achieve success in the weaving industry. Two of the best known are James Leman and Christopher Baudouin who both designed patterns for woven silks.
