LUNCHTIME LECTURE: Join Curator Tessa Murdoch as she discusses the themes of the V&A’s new exhibition Treasures of the Royal Courts: Tudors, Stuarts and the Russian Tsars.
The exhibition reveals the majesty and pageantry of the royal courts of Henry VIII to Charles II and Ivan IV (Ivan the Terrible) to the early Romanovs as they sought to strengthen their power against a backdrop of religious and social upheaval. Comprising more than 150 objects, the exhibition chronicles the ritual and chivalry of the royal courts with heraldry, processional armour and sumptuous textiles including furnishings and fine clothing.
