Member Tour - Games of Love in Medieval Ivories

For members and their guests. No registration necessary.

We invite members to join Martina Bagnoli, Andrew W. Mellon Curator of Medieval Art, for an exclusive tour. The end of the Middle Ages saw a marked increase in the production of secular ivories. Many portray clever games of loves and courting scenes. This tour highlights some outstanding examples and examines the literary sources of these popular themes.
