Samurai Armor at the Pointe-à-Callière

February 16, 2013

This winter the Pointe-à-Callière (Montreal Museum of Archaeology and History) has been hosting Dr. Richard Béliveau’s collection of Samurai Armor. This is fascinating stuff to draw. Each one of these sets of armor calls on masters skill in metalwork, embroidery, fabric dyes, wood work, scrimshaw.


There’s so much complex artistry in these artifacts. They really call for sustained drawings. I’d love to have a month to paint one of these….Perhaps. Perhaps I will. More on that later.

    Amazing. You can make a pencil do a lot of work. This exhibit looks fascinating.

    Lovely drawings, very powerful. I think they could work as HUGE drawings too!
