Fantasy and medieval past
For the past 150 years, Americans have been fascinated by the medieval past. Drawing on the work of contemporary illustrators Tony Dee Terlizzi, Leo and Diane Dillon and Jan Shenherra, as well as historical works from the Howard Pile collection in the museum, the exhibition "Fantasy and medieval past"introduces fantastic medieval kingdoms. From magical creatures, castle complexes and images of chivalry, the exposition prepares viewers to rethink the medieval world, reflecting the changing understanding of modern America of gender equality, cultural identity, disability and differences.
