Tapestry Description

Unicorn in Captivity tapestry

Metropolitan Cloisters tapestries

The Unicorn in Captivity tapestry is one of the famed Metropolitan Cloisters tapestries. This late 15th century tapestry is the last scene in The Hunt of the Unicorn series. The letters AE refer to Anne of Brittany for whom the series was commissioned for her marriage to Louis XII. They were owned by the Rochefoucauld family but purchased by John D Rockefeller who presented them to the Metropolitan Museum in New York where they are key features of the Cloisters.

Today this is woven in France in 43% wool, 35% cotton and 17% viscose. It is fully lined with a rod pocket – we enclose tapestry hanging instructions with your order.

Please note that the French weavers have discontinued this fine tapestry and we have just one in stock!
