An impressive tapestry collection
The prince-bishops of Speyer furnished their residence in Bruchsal with precious tapestries depicting biblical, mythological, and exotic motifs. With seventy tapestries in all, the collection is now one of the largest in Germany. The four tapestries of the six-tapestry grotesque series are particularly impressive. They were made in 1685/1719 by Philippe Behagle (father or son) in Beauvais, in northern France.
