    ‘Flemish tapestry’ at the turn of the 15th and 16th centuries meant primarily Brussels tapestry; the city had become the principal center for tapestry weaving, with a character and technique quite unlike that in other workshops

    Novel characteristics too were the search for perfection, recognizable in the earliest works attributed, probably rightly, to Brussels, and a bias towards painting.
