DESCRIZIONE:

Publisher's description and from the back cover:
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 centuries, much has been written and many theories advanced about this fascinating six-piece hanging, which has significantly enhanced our understanding of the work.
This book presents updated overview, and it aims, if not to solve all of its mysteries, at leats to provide some answers tothe questions posed by the reader and viewer.
