Samurai Dressed to Kill at the Cincinnati Art Museum will leave you awestruck

Opening February 11, 2017 at the Cincinnati Art Museum, this exhibition introduces Japanese samurai culture and arts from the 16th–19th centuries. The 130 warrior-related objects are selected from the collections of the Cincinnati Art Museum and Gary Grose, a local collector. In addition to 11 full suits of armor and a wide variety of arms, this exhibition will also feature the museum’s related Japanese art works, including battle prints, paintings, metal crafts, banners and costumes – many will be on display for the first time.
