Arms and Armor from Imperial Austria to be displayed in Cleveland

February 24, 2008 – June 1, 2008 the Cleveland Museum of Art will host Arms and Armor from Imperial Austria, an exhibit of over 200 pieces of armor from the 16th and 17th centuries.

From the website:

The exhibition, presenting more than 200 works, will additionally examine the role of arms and armor in a historical context, both as highly-decorated art objects, and as functional weaponry or protection for its wearer. Other aspects of the history of the period explored are warfare, tournaments, and armor as fashion.
