Forma Spanish. The Spanish Magazine Forma, in no. 19 (1907), contains a short article in French by Jose Ramon Medida on the Mercury and Herse set of eight Brussels Renaissance tapestries belonging to the Duchess of Denia. He wrongly identifies Herse as the nymph Carmenta and does not grasp the significance of the different scenes. The article is accompanied by half-tone illustrations of the set and of two pieces of a duplicate set in the Barcelona Court House. In no. 23 (1907) of Forma are half-tones of ancient tapestries in the Cathedral of Tarragona. Spiliotti Russian designates an article on the Imperial Tapestry Factory that appeared on pages 231-250, with four large half-tone illustrations, of the Russian Magazine (no longer published), Treasures of Art in Russia, in 1903.
Plate no. 367. The Capture of a City, a Renaissance tapestry in the Imperial Austrian Collection. One of the set of 8 picturing the Fruits of War (Fructus Belli), signed with the Brussels mark and the monogram of Martin Reymbouts.
