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.

Date: 10/26/14

Time: 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM

Like J.P. Morgan and other members of the Gilded Age elite, Henry Walters was an “omnivorous” collector of art. To mark the opening of From Rye to Raphael: The Walters Story, Walters curator Jo Briggs, Christine Nelson, Drue Heinz Curator of Literary and Historical Manuscripts at the Morgan Library and Museum, and John Ott, associate professor at James Madison University consider how discriminating purchasing cemented social relationships at the turn of the century.
