Description

A Knight’s Tale features stunning masterpieces of European arms and armor, dating from the Medieval and Renaissance ages to the Romantic revival of the “Medieval” of the 1800s. Not only is the provocative beauty and exquisite artistic craftsmanship of the objects revealed, the figure of the knight, the origins of the code of chivalry, the battlefield functions and effectiveness of arms and armor are also investigated and brought to life.

The display of more than 100 objects – full suits of armor, mounted equestrian figures, helmets, corselets, shields, a variety of swords and other weaponry – is enriched by explicative graphic panels; themes of courtly pursuits, of love and war, jousts and tournaments, military status and the historical context in which the objects were made and used are addressed.
