prodigious: The Art of The European Armorer and the Ronald S. Lauder Collection


pierre terjanian, arthur ochs Sulzberger curator, department of Arms and Armor, the Metropolitan museum of art

“For more than 40 years, Ronald S. Lauder collected knights in shining armor. Now he has decided to be one,” declared The New York Times when the Metropolitan Museum of Art announced that Mr. Lauder will be gifting 91 pieces of arms and armor to the museum, the most significant grouping of European arms and armor given to the Met since 1942. The craftsmen who specialized in making armor and weapons in late medieval and Renaissance Europe continuously pushed the limits of their art, much to the delight of the noble patrons and rulers. Pierre Terjanian will focus on select masterpieces presented in "The Ronald S. Lauder Collection" and pay special attention to the qualities that set them apart.
