CLEVELAND (January 10, 2023) — The Cleveland Museum of Art (CMA) announces ticket information for its next major exhibition, The Tudors: Art and Majesty in Renaissance England, on view Sunday, February 26 through May 14, 2023, in the Kelvin and Eleanor Smith Foundation Exhibition Hall.

The first exhibition in the United States to trace the transformation of the arts in Tudor England, The Tudors: Art and Majesty in Renaissance England offers a provocative selection of objects from the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s rich holdings with major loans from European and American collections as well as works from the Cleveland Museum of Art that bring the drama of the age to life. The exhibition captures the breathtaking scope of the finest artistic production of the age, from intricately wrought armor, rare furnishings, and glittering tapestries woven with gold to portraits of sumptuously attired courtiers and precious illuminated manuscripts. This exhibition explores the sophistication of Tudor artistic patronage and promises to captivate audiences and stimulate discussion of the Tudor monarchs and their unforgettable imagery. 

Organized by the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in collaboration with the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco (FAMSF), the exhibition brings together more than 90 loans from illustrious institutions including the British Royal Collection, Rijksmuseum, Folger Shakespeare Library, Victoria and Albert Museum, National Museum of Denmark, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and Saint Bavo’s Cathedral, Ghent.
