About the Class
Delve into the art of tapestry, from its princely beginnings in the Middle Ages to its revival by modernist painters and patrons in the 20th century. This class will present major tapestry sets and the artists involved in their design and production, and will feature works from this spring’s Marie Cuttoli exhibition.
