Armor for Henry II of France, ca. 1555
After styles by Etienne Delaune (1518/19-1583)
French (Paris)
Steel Ht. all round 74 inches (187.96 cm)

This instance of one of the most elaborate and complete French parade armors retains much of its original coloring. The surfaces are covered by dense foliate scrolls inhabited by human figures and a variety of fabulous creatures that derive from Italian grotesque. The decoration includes (at the center of the breast) a Roman warrior receiving tribute arms from two kneeling females and (on the shoulders) Apollo chasing the nymph Daphne (front) and Apollo with the slain monster Python (back). The crescent moon, a badge of Henry II (r. 1547-59), is identified in several locations.

The style of the decoration is attributed to the Parisian goldsmith and printmaker Étienne Delaune (1518/19-1583), who served Henry II as an engraver at the royal mint. Many preparatory styles for this armor, numerous apparently in Delaune’s hand, are in the Graphische Sammlung, Munich.

Harris Brisbane Dick Fund, 1939 (39.121)

The collection of armor, edged weapons, and firearms in The Metropolitan Museum of Art ranks with those of the other wonderful armories of the globe, in Vienna, Madrid, Dresden, and Paris. It consists of roughly 15,000 objects that range in date from about 400 B.C. to the nineteenth century. Although Western Europe and Japan are the regions most strongly represented–the collection of much more than five thousand pieces of Japanese armor and weapons is the finest outside Japan–the geographical variety of the collection is extraordinary, with examples from the Close to East, the Middle East, India, Central Asia, China, Southeast Asia, Indonesia, and North America. The Arms and Armor Galleries were renovated and reinstalled in 1991 to display to far better impact the outstanding collection of armor and weapons of sculptural and ornamental beauty from around the world.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s permanent collection contains more than two million works of art from around the planet. It opened its doors on February 20, 1872, housed in a developing located at 681 Fifth Avenue in New York City. Beneath their guidance of John Taylor Johnston and George Palmer Putnam, the Met’s holdings, initially consisting of a Roman stone sarcophagus and 174 largely European paintings, swiftly outgrew the available space. In 1873, occasioned by the Met’s purchase of the Cesnola Collection of Cypriot antiquities, the museum decamped from Fifth Avenue and took up residence at the Douglas Mansion on West 14th Street. However, these new accommodations were temporary right after negotiations with the city of New York, the Met acquired land on the east side of Central Park, where it constructed its permanent home, a red-brick Gothic Revival stone &quotmausoleum&quot made by American architects Calvert Vaux and Jacob Wrey Mold. As of 2006, the Met measures practically a quarter mile long and occupies much more than two million square feet, much more than 20 instances the size of the original 1880 constructing.

In 2007, the Metropolitan Museum of Art was ranked #17 on the AIA 150 America’s Favourite Architecture list.
