Lady and the Unicorn, 1500, Anonymous

A Short film by Carlos Franklin

Produced by Les Poissons Volants

Production year : 2016


    A film from the Les Petits Secrets des grands tableaux collection - Season 3

    The Lady and the Unicorn, c. 1500, an anonymous work, is a mysterious and bewitching set of six tapestries considered one of the masterpieces of Western art. A metaphor of desire, the celebration of the five human senses and of a sixth spiritual and humanist sense, the fantasy of the magical unicorn announced the end of the French medieval period.

    Thanks to digital animation, the details of the masterpieces of the history of art come to life to recount the spirit of the times and the upheavals of history: wars, revolutions, economic transformations, scientific discoveries, beliefs, and the flow of ideas.
