Opus Anglicanum: Masterpieces of English Medieval Embroidery
From 1st October 2016 to 5th February 2017
Closed Now, Paid Entry (£12.00)
Victoria & Albert Museum, Cromwell Road, London, SW7 2RL
From the 12th to the 15th centuries, England enjoyed an international reputation for the quality of its luxury embroideries, often referred to as ‘Opus Anglicanum’ (English work). Made by professional craftspeople in the City of London and rich in their intricacy, they were sought after by kings, queens, popes and cardinals from across Europe. Paintings, illuminated manuscripts, metalwork and stained glass will be shown alongside rare surviving examples to explore the world within which these exquisite works were created. This exhibition is a rare opportunity to see an outstanding range of surviving examples in one place. Some of the embroideries have not been seen in Britain since they were produced.
