SAMURAI. THE SPLENDOUR OF JAPANESE CHIVALRY. THE ANN AND GABRIEL BARBIER-MUELLER COLLECTION. 20 FEBRUARY TO 30 MAY 2021

The samurai dominated Japan's history for centuries, not just as warriors but as the political élite. Their legends are tales of courage and discipline, loyalty and noble self-sacrifice – interwoven with betrayal, intrigue and ruthless violence. Exquisitely wrought of precious metals and sumptuous materials, their armour was not merely a protective covering, but also an imposing status symbol.

The exhibition features one of the most outstanding collections of samurai armour, helmets, masks, horse tack and weaponry which was built up by Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller over a period spanning more than 30 years. More than 100 objects dating from the 13th to the 19th century bring the fascinating history of Japanese chivalry to life.
