After our stroll through the #ImperialArmoury we have great news! Many objects from this collection will be shown at @metmuseum soon within ‘The Last Knight: The Art, Armor, and
Ambition of Maximilian I’ 😀 The exhibition will be on view from from October 7, 2019–January 5, 2020. It will be the first major exhibition to focus on the critical role that armor played in the life and ambitions of Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I (1459–1519). Swipe through for a little sneak peek on what will be waiting for you in New York City. 👉
