DESCRIPTION

Donald LaRocca, curator of arms and armor, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, explores the greatest examples of 16th-century armor-making from Italy, Germany, England, and France, during a period when armor truly was sculpture in steel. Created by the leading armorers of the day for emperors, kings, and the nobility, these masterpieces now rank among the most treasured possessions of the major museums of Europe and the United States.
