Knights in Shining Armors


The Knights exhibition features stunning masterpieces of European arms and armors, dating from the Medieval and Renaissance ages to the Romantized “Medieval” of the 1800s. Not only is the provocative beauty and exquisite artistic craftsmanship of the objects revealed, the figure of the knight, his code of chivalry and his battlefield role will also be investigated and brought to life.


Themes of courtly pursuits, of love and war, jousts and tournaments, and the historical context in which the objects were made and used are addressed.
