In 149 color plates and 222 duotones, this volume catalogs more than 250 textiles and objects made of fabric, many of which were used as hangings, covers, or upholstery to decorate the Lehman town house in Manhattan. Some of the most distinguished and historically significant objects in the collection are here, including the Last Supper after Bernaert van Orley, arguably the finest Renaissance tapestry in an American collection, and two series of embroidered roundels from 15th-century Flanders illustrating episodes from the lives of Saint Martin and Saint Catherine. This book is part of a series of beautifully produced and illustrated volumes examining in depth the Robert Lehman Collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
