About the Museum
Allegory of Autumn belongs to the tapestry series The Four Seasons made in Pieter van der Hecke's workshop probably after cartoons by Ludwig van Schoor. Pieter van der Hecke took over the workshop of his father, Jan Frans, repeatedly using cartoons he had inherited from his father's workshop in a series of tapestries. Today, other tapestries in the series are in the Royal Museum of Arts and History in Brussels, Würzburg Palace and a private collection.
Allegory of Autumn and two other tapestries acquired at the end of the 19th century were probably part of the refurbishment of Pribislavac Manor carried out by the heirs of Count Festetić.
