Gallery Talk: Dress and Depiction—Dutch Drawings of Ottoman Men

July 14 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

Costumes were ethnic, religious, and social markers in the early modern world. Costume books, travelogues, and textiles circulated widely in Europe, provoking ideas about the lifestyles and customs of people in distant and foreign lands. Join Khushi Choudhary, graduate student at Harvard Divinity School, to discover the role that costumes played in forming identities in 16th- and 17th-century Europe.

This talk is offered in conjunction with the exhibition Imagine Me and You: Dutch and Flemish Encounters with the Islamic World, 1450–1750 (May 18–August 18, 2024).

Led by:
Khushi Choudhary, Graduate Student Teacher, Division of Academic and Public Programs, Harvard Art Museums

Please check in with museum staff at the Visitor Services desk in the Calderwood Courtyard to request to join the talk. Talks are limited to 18 people and are available on a first-come, first-served basis; no registration is required.
