Bodyguards. In the absence of a taxation system that would have enabled them to maintain standing armies, the rulers of early modern Europe had small units of professional soldiers attached to their households just like noble courtiers and court artists. Generally known as bodyguards, they ensured the safety of the rulers' person and domains. One of the innovative exhibits at the Art Institute of Chicago's new Deering Family Galleries is in the rotunda that leads to the main arms and armor hall; focusing on bodyguards, it features armor, staff weapons, firearms, and swords in the museum's George F. Harding Collection (acquired in 1982) or borrowed from private individuals as well as institutions. The helmet of this gleaming partly gilded armor for a papal bodyguard is on loan from our collection. Made in Brescia about 1550-55, it was commissioned for the guard of Pope Julius III (d. 1555) and one of the first major purchases our Department made, when we acquired the private collection of Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord, duc de Dino, well over a hundred years ago!

The elegant shape and beautiful decoration of this helmet suggest that it was made in Italy under French influence. The unusually tall and backward-leaning comb along the top of the helmet, the form and attachment of the buffe (face defense), and the fine scrolls that border the etched bands are all characteristic of French armor in the 1550s. However, the style of the etching and the choice of motifs—widely spaced trophies of armor, weapons, and Classical symbols—are more typical of the best Italian armor of the period.

And here is the peak in all its glory (i.e. separated from the composite helmet). Have a great Weekend, Everyone!

FRIDAY FACE - happily looking back at a weird and tumultuous week. This is an old photograph of a rather interesting helmet of armet-type in the Museum's collection. It first 'appeared' early in the 20th century as part of a "complete" and "homogenous" armor. Carl Otto Kretzschmar von Kienbusch acquired it, but then the armor turned out to be largely composite, so he gave it away and only kept the helmet. The latter entered the Museum's collection as part of the Kienbusch Bequest in 1977, but then the helmet turned out to be composite too: the skull, or bowl, the cheek pieces, and the upper part of the visor are genuine and of about the same date but do not belong together, while the lower part of the visor (in the shape of a grinning mouth) is a modern addition. The most striking and important part of this assembly is, of course, the "visor" ... only, it turned out not to be a visor at all but the brim, or peak, of an extremely rare open-faced type of helmet made specifically for ceremonial purposes: less than a handful of comparative pieces are known to survive. [All these findings are not mine, by the way, but the summed up research of some of my predecessors.] The peak was just photographed again on its own, and I will post one of those images a little later today .

Since there is no Game of Thrones this weekend (yes, I am one of "those people", but c'mon, are you that surprised? 😜), and not for a very long time, I am posting this helmet crest for the burgonet of Sforza Pallavicino for a little dragon action. Milan, Italy, ca. 1560, steel and gold. #themet #armsandarmour #armsandarmor #armor #helmet #crest #dragon #italy #steel #gold #burgonet #gameofthrones #dracarys #flashbackfriday

A burgonet helmet, Nuremberg, circa 1570. Beschau and unknown armourer's mark. The elegant shape and decoration strongly suggest that the presend helmet was made for a high ranking officer to be used in the field.
