About The Event

These sessions offer a guided look at a work of art to mine for richer meaning, explore ideas, and discover overlooked details. To consider how the Valois Tapestries functioned as propaganda for the 16th-century French court, we explore the elaborate narratives depicted, as well as the cultural and political context in which the hangings were made. Exhibition ticket required.
