Little is known about the life and career of Louis Tessier. The records of the Gobelins tapestry manufactory list him as a flower painter, and he was known for his designs in the Neoclassical style. On two occasions he updated the borders of tapestries, eliminating the Rococo ornament and focusing all attention on the central narrative.
