Friends of the Uffizi: The Making and the Meanings of the Valois Tapestries with Katherine Baker, Ph.D
Sunday, Jan. 21 / 3:00–4:00 pm
Boca Raton Museum of Art

Exquisite examples of Renaissance luxury art, the eight hangings collectively known as the Valois Tapestries present a spectacular vision of 16th century courtly life in France. This presentation by Katherine Baker, Ph.D. explores how the tapestries, commissioned by Catherine de Medici for her dearly beloved granddaughter, capture many stories of that time – the political and economic climate, technical advances in fabrication, and the personal lives of its makers and patrons. 

Katherine Baker is an assistant professor of art history at Arkansas State University.
