Courtiers in a Rose Garden: A Lady and Two Gentlemen is from a series of tapestries that were made to be hung on large sections of walls. Historians believe this particular tapestry was made for the French king, Charles VII, since the colors represented the most within his home were red, white, and green. Back in the olden days, it would take several years to make a tapestry of this size. Tapestries such as this one were hung on the walls as a sort of insulation, plus they reflected the owner's true wealth and power.
