This exhibition aims to bring together an outstanding range of the surviving examples of this celebrated period in England’s artistic production to both highlight the exquisite craftsmanship and to explore the world in which they were created. Alongside the magnificent embroideries, many from the V&A’s own collection, will be related material in other media such as paintings, manuscripts, metalwork and sculpture.
