Collection: La Chevalière d'Eon

In the late 17th century, soldier, spy, diplomat and trans woman la Chevalière d'Eon was considered one of the best fencers in the world. She fought a demonstration bout with the Chevalier St Georges in 1787, which was immortalised in a contemporary painting by Charles Jean Robineau. This artwork by Claire Mead (@carmineclaire) is based on that painting.
