PREFACE: From the 16th century onwards, series of costume prints were produced showing figures in the dress of different nations and classes. Fashion prints, or plates, develop out of these, but their purpose was to show the latest in fashion. They were commonly published in monthly or weekly series. PRINT #1.) Photo on Left TITE: Euriant (of Savoy) Femme Du Comte De Nevers Sous Charles VII - English Translation: Euriant, Mistress of the Count of Nevers Under Charles VII. MORE ABOUT THIS ARTWORK: Euriant, the mistress of Gérard de Nevers is shown wearing a medieval costume, seen full-length, turned to left, wearing blue cone-shaped headdress (henin) and red dress. The story of the beauty Euriant and Gerard de Nevers was related in La Roman de la violette by the poet Gerbert de Montreuil, who was a 13th-century French poet from the north of France. He wrote Le Roman de la violette or Gérard de Nevers, one of the most outstanding medieval poems, famous for its vivid narrative and faithful depiction of contemporary customs. It tells the trials of the unfortunate and innocent Euriant, who becomes an object of public dispute between Gérard de Nevers and Lisiard de Forez, the former taking her defense while the other suggests she is guilty of misconduct by claiming he knows of a violet-shaped mark on her bosom. The story percolated into Shakespeare's Cymbeline via Giovanni Boccaccio, and Carl Maria von Weber's opera Euryanthe. The poem underwent countless adaptations and imitations.
