The Lady and the Unicorn tapestry is famous for its brilliantly simple yet enigmatic compositions and warm colours, its appealing female figures and animals taken from life and mythology, as well as Its flower-strewn "millefleur" background. Over the last two centuries, much has been written and many theories advanced about this fascinating six-piece hanging, which has significantly enhanced our understanding of the work. The enthusiasm for the image of the unicorn in the Middle Ages and its countless representations from the late 19th century to the present continue to intrigue. The installation of the tapestry at the Musée de Cluny has inspired writers and artists since 1883. Now, at the beginning of the 21st century, it continues to pique the interest of creative individuals — is that not the very definition of a masterpiece ?
