This piece was producted in limited edition of 20 produced from 1968- 1970 by Ewald Kröner in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Ewald Kröner is considered to be the German reference artist for tufted art tapestries and carpets. For several decades since the 1960's he has promoted artistic tapestries. Kröner included a number of complementary activities within his remit, such as editor, manufacturer and weaver, but was also able to include that of distributor and designer as well. He began by weaving in his own workshop and home. In the 1970's he purchased a castle and transferred his manufacturing to the Schloss Heckhausen. He managed his main showroom in Karlsruhe/Düsseldorf and also seems to have had galleries in both Munich and Zurich. The list of artists produced by Kröner is impressive: Bauer, Chagall, Claisse, Geiger, Hajek, Herbin, Hundertwasser, Kandinsky, Klimt, Miro, Mondrian, Picasso, Rothko, Vasarely and Warhol. The success of Kröner is validated by the fact his tapestries have become part of art collections and can be seen in museums around the world.
