Pleased to have been able to see the exhibit “Habsburg Splendor: Masterpieces from Vienna’s Imperial Collections” at Atlanta’s High Museum today. Some pictures:
Embroidered Habsburg coat of arms.
Hans Daucher, Emperor Maximilian I on Horseback as St. George, a “Christian Soldier,” 1522.
A fuller Habsburg coat of arms.
A painting of a girl with Ambras Syndrome. For more on the phenomenon, see Merry Wiesner-Hanks, The Marvelous Hairy Girls: The Gonzales Sisters and their Worlds (2009).
The hem of a robe of a member of the Order of the Golden Fleece. Note the fleece and flint-and-steel devices.
A silver St. Sebastian shot with golden arrows.
