Thanks Johan,

I have used Fouquet's work extensively, and I can recommend it highly to
anyone with an interest in the Wienhausen Tristan embroideries.  Her
approach is primarily literary, comparing the scenes depicted in the
embroideries to written versions of the legend, but she provides a wealth
of detailed information about the physical aspects of the embroideries, and
also deals, in less depth, with some of the other embroidered Tristan
