Mars and the Muses: The Renaissance Art of Armor with Dr. Tobias Capwell
August 11, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The noblemen of Europe used their armor not just to protect, but to project. This riveting talk reveals how the virtuosity of skilled armorers—sculpting iron and steel, gilding, and etching—created for their patrons complex messages about identity, status, aristocratic ties, the social order, and even divine power. International expert Dr. Tobias Capwell is the former curator of arms in Glasgow museums, and in London’s Wallace Collection.
