I'm looking for a particular painting that portrays a lightly armed man with what i recall are relatively thin strips of mail attached to the outside of his arms. He is wearing some form of cloth armor (gambeson or arming coat).

If you can recall this painting, please let me know.

Thanks,
Dustin

Is it this soldier by Memling?


It is a detail found on Memlings larger work on the martyrdom of Saint Ursula.

I know the painting in question, but couldn't track it down with a quick search.

It's a painting of a 16th century knight in his arming doublet with his voiders attached.

Most people miss the "odd" period knee brace he's wearing.

Good luck with the search.

If I remember the last thread I saw it on I'll post it for you.

Cheers,

DT

Dustin,

Are you looking for drawings of 16th century arming coats with maille?

Great image David. But what is the item on the middle right?

Thanks,

Probably not what was originally referred to, but maybe interesting anyway - St Eustace from the Paumgarter Altarpiece has what appear to be strips of mail as a limb defense, but on his legs, not his arms:

Ah! this was what i was thinking about! I got the body parts mixed up though, apparently. Thanks for all the images, though, they are all great.

Thank you.
