This field armor -etched and gilded- is part of a garniture, made in Milan between 1570/80 . The armor (from the collection of the Marquesses de Dos Aguas in Spain) is fitted with a shock-absorbing, braketlike lance rest on the breastplate, and the right pauldron is cut out under the armpit to acommodate the shaft of a lance. Altogether, some 24 pieces are known to exist, comprising the elements neede to form a three-quarter field armor, a half armor for the foot tournament and armor for the horse. Part of the former well known Harding collection, this armor is now exhibited at the: Art Institute in Chicago/Illinois.
