Lady And The Unicorn, The by Tracy Chevalier

Paris, 1490. A shrewd French nobleman commissions six lavish tapestries celebrating his rising status at Court. He hires the charismatic, arrogant, sublimely talented Nicolas des Innocents to design them. Nicolas creates havoc among the women in the house–mother and daughter, servant, and lady-in-waiting–before taking his designs north to the Brussels workshop where the tapestries are to be woven. There, master weaver Georges de la Chapelle risks everything he has to finish the tapestries–his finest, most intricate work–on time for his exacting French client. The results change all their lives–lives that have been captured in the tapestries, for those who know where to look.
