Heraldry from the Cloisters
These pictures were taken at The Cloisters Museum, the (other) medieval wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Originally I intended the project as a catalogue of all the heraldry at the Cloisters for purposes of art history research, but I think the page serves better as a primer on heraldic display. This is not a comprehensive catalog of all heraldry found at the Cloisters, but the variety of ways that heraldry is put on "stuff" is fascinating.
