ARMS & ARMOR: The Cleveland Museum of Art
This collection shows how European armor evolved from garments of chain-mail, to suits of articulated metal plates, and how weapons of the early Middle Ages became the ancestors of exquisite swords and firearms of the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries. We are introduced to their historical context as these artifacts still retain their power to thrill us. Well illustrated, most in color.
