This gallery talk will explore the intersection between works of armor in Renaissance Italy and how they are depicted in Renaissance paintings. Kirchhoff will explore possible meanings at the center of these intersections. She will also discuss how artists and armorers encountered and drew upon one anothers work in the context of the Italian court and its material culture.
