Along with representative medieval objects, "Medieval X Modern" presents the work of modern artists from Europe and the Americas who created prints, drawings, paintings, illustrated books, sculptures, and decorative objects informed by the spectacular craftsmanship and compelling historical figures of the Middle Ages.

Scholars and artists also produced publications illustrating royal treasures and architectural remains that not only testify to a pride in the medieval past, but also serve nationalistic narratives in the present. Drawing primarily from the Blanton’s permanent collection, "Medieval X Modern" offers a wide array of artistic responses to the European Middle Ages, including one of the museum’s most iconic works - Ellsworth Kelly’s "Austin."
