Genealogy in embroidery of kings of England.

Since my childhood, I have been passionate about History. This passion has driven me to start on studies at university of CAEN, specialised in the medieval period. Simultaneously, I developed a taste for art which made my futur job. I completed this with an art production around the genealogical and artistical subject. 

In 2006, the project "OPUS OCCIDENTALIS" is a monumental embroidery exhibiting the genealogy of dynasties reigned on Europe until the Carolingian period today. This long-term work endeavour begins with the kingdom of France. By successive works, it will present, in the end, all the European royal genealogies. Work has been continued by the kingdom of Britain  to make the new embroidery.

"LEOPARD", the name of this second embroidery, is devoted to the genealogy of kings and queens of England. The embroidery, which will measure nearly 6 meters (19,685 feet) in height and 4 meters (13,1234 feet) in width, will be created during the months of March and April 2019.


A view of the embroidery of the kings and Queens of France realised in 2016 and exhibitioned at

 Royal Castle of Villandry, July 2016

 Royal Castle of Amboise, September 2016


 Castle of Bussy-Rabutin  of the Center of National Monuments, February 2017



If "OPUS OCCIDENTALIS" is written in the tradition of family tree, it offers originality, by her characteristic and extendible monumental, to present an united picture of an  European reality. This monumental characteristic exceeds the strict surroundings of erudition work, giving interest to this art work. In this way, finally presenting itself as visual effect, imerging the public in complexity of the filiation principles.

To complete this project successfully, the textile will appear as an ideal support where it represents big areas and otherwise written in a western tradition.

 With this choice, it must find a adapted graphic system. The arbitrary choice and medieval patterns were done, offering advantage to be adjusted according to the need of a big complex spatial organisation. Medieval patterns are appeared as a graphic system which is best adapted on textile support and with a vegetative character which I would like to give.
