Oriental tapestries came to prominence in the 17th century, especially in France. They continue to be popular today. One of the most distinctive works of Chinoiserie tapestry is La Recotte des Ananas from a series called "The Story of the Emperor of China." It is believed to have been commissioned by Louis Alexandre de Bourbon, the son of Louis XIV. It is incredibly detailed, showing exotic Chinese plants, animals, costumes, landscape, and architecture. This series of ten tapestries can be found today in excellent reproductions.
