THE NOBLE ART OF THE SWORD: Fashion and Fencing in Renaissance Europe 1520–1630
Tobias Capwell

Accompanying an international exhibition at the Wallace Collection (May–Sept. 2012), this book features weapons and related works of art as well as other great collections of arms and armor; never-before-seen illustrated works on fencing, portraits, prints and drawings that will help place the Renaissance civilian sword in its social and artistic context. It will also explore the ancient origins of the modern sport of fencing, one of only nine original Olympic events practiced since the first Olympiad of the modern era of 1896, revealing a place in history where art and sport converge.
