The Barberini Tapestries: Woven Monuments of Baroque Rome
March 21–June 25, 2017
In its half-century of activity, the Barberini workshop custom-wove designs by some of the most eminent painters of the era, Peter Paul Rubens, Pietro da Cortona, and Giovanni Francesco Romanelli, and decorated the Vatican Palace, the Sistine Chapel, and the Palazzo Barberini. This magnificent exhibition will shed light on these objects as both an aesthetic experience and as cultural artifacts. More information on this exhibition is available here.
