Fragile Splendour: Prestige, Power & Politics from the Medici to the Present Day

About this event

An international tour of dynasties and the political power and prestige they held from the Golden Age of Renaissance Art and Culture starting in Florence with the rise of the political dominance of the Medici family, through to the importance attributed to the abundance of jewels worn in the Royal Indian Courts. Diplomatic gifts of luxury goods such as tapestries, silk, gold boxes and porcelain always played a central role in international relations.
