付费入场 (£12.00)

活动地点:

Victoria & Albert Museum, Cromwell Road, London, SW7 2RL

内容:

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.

What was 'Opus Anglicanum'? Literally meaning 'English work', Opus Anglicanum was the term used to describe the esquisite embroidery created by English embroiderers in the medieval period using luxury materials such as silk, peals, gold thread and velvet. English embroideries produced in this period between about 1250 and 1360 are typically bold in their overall design and covered in detailed, figurative decoration, such as this example from the Bologna Cope from the Convent of San Domenico in Bologna. Experience this amazing work first-hand in our #OpusAnglicanum exhibition. Open now, book at vam.ac.uk/opus
