The Accolade IV tapestry shows the knighting scene by artist Edmund Blair Leighton (1852-1922). Leighton's work specialised in medieval works and the Accolade from 1901 is one of his most well known and beautiful works. Here we see the English artist's scene where we see a romantic look at the procession of dubbing or adoubement of knighthood. The knight to be kneels on a cushion or stool before the Queen or King and the ceremony is performed where the sword is placed on the right shoulder. Here we see the work of Leighton with the beautiful colors accentuate in the scene with the light cast on the lady and the knight to illuminate them against the darker background where the other members of the court are watching. The Accolade IV tapestry is backed with lining and tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are purchased separately.
