An important carved oak corbel or beam-end with the portrait of Anne of Britanny, duchess of Brittany from 1488 until her death, and queen consort of France from 1491 to 1498 and from 1499 to her death in 1514. Anne of Brittany was the object of representations very early on. The royal propaganda of Charles VIII and, later on, of Louis XII idealized her as a symbol of the perfect queen, on the union between the kingdom and the duchy, and of the return to peace.
France (Bretagne). Early 16th century.
