Tudors: Art and Majesty in Renaissance England at Metropolitan Museum of Art [New York]

Tudors: Art and Majesty in Renaissance England

10th October 2022 – 8th January 2023

The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Cleveland Museum of Art have mounted a major exhibition on Tudor patronage of the arts, the first on this subject to be held in the United States. The English court of the Tudor period was truly cosmopolitan, boasting the work of Florentine sculptors, German painters, Flemish weavers, and Europe’s best armorers, goldsmiths, and printers; from this melting pot emerged a distinctly English style. The Royal Collection has lent a variety of material to this exhibition including three portrait studies by Hans Holbein, two miniatures by Lucas Horenbout, a painting by Marcus Gheeraerts, and a tapestry from Henry VIII’s collection, The Triumph of Hercules, which still has its original gold thread.
