Description

Specialists of silver liturgical objects, the 17th-18th century workshop of Armenian silversmiths in Kayseri, central Anatolia, endured for almost 90 years. The Morgan Library & Museum is fortunate to own 3 sets of silver and enameled covers from this workshop, now on exhibition. Join Sylvie Merian for an illustrated lecture discussing the silversmiths, their work, and the Dutch woodcuts used as inspiration by some of these craftsmen, whose oeuvre is found in collections worldwide.
