Room 9: The Rise of the Gothic 1200–1350
The Dorothy and Michael Hintze Gallery
The development of the Gothic style is set in a wider social and cultural context in this gallery. Although it developed in France, the Gothic style was rapidly adopted in most of Europe. The concepts of chivalry and heraldry developed during this period. Displays of stained glass, ivory and luxurious church embroideries are presented in this intimate space.
Room 9 is on Level 0 of the V&A South Kensington.
