Ottoman Embroideries and Other Ornament

The Ottoman Empire was home to a variety of ethnic and religious communities.  Despite their cultural differences, these communities shared a sophisticated language of ornament, that each cultural group modified and adapted to its own individual needs and values.  The Walters Art Museum has an excellent, but little-known, collection of embroidered textiles from Greece, Asia Minor, Armenia, Algeria, and other regions of the former Ottoman Empire.  This Focus Exhibition includes 13 rarely seen textiles and 12 objects that display many of the ornamental motifs that are typical of Ottoman decorative art.   On view since May 5, this exhibition will close on September 9, 2007.
