The exhibition will examine the profound significance of European armor at the dawn of the Renaissance, through the lens of Emperor Maximilian I's (1459–1519) remarkable life. On view only at The Met, The Last Knight will coincide with the five hundredth anniversary of Maximilian's death, and is the most ambitious North American loan exhibition of European arms and armor in decades.
The Last Knight: The Art, Armor, and Ambition of Maximilian will be on view at The Met Fifth Avenue from October 7th, 2019 through January 5th, 2020.
