Science and Splendor at the Courts of Europe
This exhibition of some 150 objects looks at the intersection of art and technology in royal European collections between the 16th and the 18th centuries. With everything from an alchemical table bell to astronomical clocks, the exhibition explores how ruling families surrounded themselves with objects of wonder – as emblems of status, but also to advance the realm of scientific knowledge. Find out more from the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s website.
