This tapestry, known as "sight" is one of six from a series commissioned in the latter part of the 15th century by the Le Viste family. The artist, Nicolas des Innocents created five tapestries depicting the senses and one depicting his love for the daughter of the family who commissioned the tapestries. There are multiple stories being told throughout the series. It is said the patriarch of the family wanted battle tapestries commissioned, but that his wife wanted a more gentle subject portrayed. Nicolas des Innocents, the artist, had his own ideas for the tapestries and incorporated some of his own personal story into the tapestries as well.
