The Lady and the Unicorn stole

The decoration of each of the tapestries of the Lady and the Unicorn is set against a magnificent vermilion background.

This famous series of wall hangings, commissioned by Jean Le Viste, member of a rich family from Lyons, is one of the tapestry masterpieces of the Museum. These six tapestries illustrate the five senses through young, sumptuously dressed women. The scenes stand out against a background of a multitude of cut flowers, like the bouquets that were strewn on the ground in front of processions or noble residences.

Presented like a set of plant illustrations, these simple flowers that include the daisy, violet, carnation, periwinkle and mint evoke the domestic or courtly gardens of the end of the Middle Ages.
