The V&A has opened its new Medieval and Renaissance Galleries. As they say on their website:
Beautiful and innovative, the V&A’s new Medieval & Renaissance Galleries are home to one of the world’s most remarkable collections of treasures from the period. These range from delicately carved ivories and intricate metalwork to Leonardo da Vinci’s notebooks and powerful sculptures by the leading masters of the Italian Renaissance.
And if you can’t get there in person, check the website for an online selection of objects in the galleries here:
