Lady with the Unicorn
Lady with the Unicorn tapestries
These Lady with the Unicorn tapestries are widely considered to be masterpieces of French medieval tapestry art. They present the senses in a mille fleurs tapestry background, plus the enigmatic A Mon Seul Desir tapestry. The originals are stunningly displayed in their own room in the Cluny Museum, Paris - do visit them if you can and experience the awesome reverence of that room. These French tapestries have a remarkable history which we discuss in some of their descriptions.
