The Hunt of the Unicorn Renaissance Tapestry 1495-1505

This seven piece collection purchased by John D. Rockefeller Jr. in 1922 now resides in the Cloisters, which is the Metropolitan Museum of Art's medeival collection. These tapestries are known for their vibrant colours and depiction of a common theme through out medeival and renaissance art. Here are two pictures of the beginning of the hunt. The Hunters entering the forest, and the spotting of the Unicorn. The intricate floral designs and inclusion of extra animals was used to heighten the aesthetic pleasure of the tapestry as well as demonstrate the skill and devotion of the weavers.
