The Tudors: Art and Majesty in Renaissance England

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York
10 October 2022 – 8 January 2023

The first of its kind in the United States, this exhibition highlighted the metropolitan court culture of Tudor England as a catalyst for the arts. This artistic revolution was represented through more than 100 objects ranging from portraits to tapestries and armour, brought together from The Met’s collection and international lenders.

As a passionate advocate of the European Renaissance, The Klesch Collection was delighted to support this exhibition and join The Metropolitan Museum of Art in promoting this fascinating era in English history.
