Of Horses and Men: The Émile Hermès Collection, Paris
MONTREAL, CANADA  •  Pointe-à-Callière, Montréal Museum of Archaeology and History  •  20 May - 16 October 2016

For the first time in its history, Hermès of Paris has agreed to share over 300 remarkable objects---of all things equestrian from the private collection of Émile Hermès.

Founded in Paris in 1837, Hermès International began as a maker of harnesses and saddles at a time when horses ruled the streets. Under the leadership of the founder’s grandson Émile Hermès (1871–1951), the firm truly took off, adapting its products to the new lifestyles of an elite clientele. A sign of wealth and power, the horse was long associated with the monarchy, nobility, bourgeoisie, and prestigious racing stables. But as the automobile began to replace the horse in daily life, the saddle maker-turned-leather merchant and avant-garde couturier realized the urgency of preserving the precious treasures of equestrian heritage.

Saddles, stirrups, spurs, and other horse tack from around the world are just some of the many objects along the horse’s trail, which takes visitors on a journey from Antiquity to the Renaissance to the 20th century.

The collection also includes a wonderful selection of paintings by great and lesser-known masters, as well as sculptures, engravings, and drawings.
