The armored horse in Europe, 1480-1620 by Stuart W Pyhrr( Book )

10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Placing these objects in context is an essay tracing the history of European horse armor from its revival in the twelfth century (after its disappearance with the fall of Rome) through its flowering in the Renaissance to its eventual obsolescence in the early 1600s. Other texts include a discussion of the featured objects in relation to those in the Museum's permanent display and an overview of armored saddles and saddle steels." "Symbol of a romantic age of chivalry, the knight was inseparable from his horse. This invaluable study reveals another aspect of that interdependence: as armorers devised protective coverings for both rider and animal, they also created lasting works of art."

Perspectives on medieval art : learning through looking( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Perspectives on Medieval Art: Learning through Looking examines medieval culture from a number of different viewpoints to reveal how the art of the Middle Ages can provide a unique insight into the wider issues of medieval politics and culture. The essays also address the teaching of medieval art and architecture as well as examining society's longing for ecclesiastical drama. Contributions from leading theologians and historians variously study life and art in the Middle Ages, why the medieval period matters today and how medieval art speaks to a 21st-century audience. Scholars from different disciplines, including Thomas Cahill and Kathryn Kueny, consider individual works of art simultaneously and examine how medieval art is taught in divinity schools, university and college classrooms and museums."--Publisher's description
Dürer and beyond : Central European drawings in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1400-1700 by Stijn Alsteens( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This exhibition is the first to offer an extensive overview of the Museum's holdings of early Central European drawings, many of which were acquired in the last two decades. An emphasis on works by later sixteenth- and seventeenth-century artists is balanced by a selection of German drawings from the fifteenth and earlier sixteenth century, of which some of the most exceptional ones--including works by Albrecht Dürer--entered the Museum with The Robert Lehman Collection in 1975."--Publisher's website
