Textile Exhibit at the Met

In October, I joined this Metropolitan Museum employee for lunch and a look at this interdisciplinary exhibition:
“Fashion and Virtue: Textile Patterns and the Print Revolution, 1520–1620” 

The exhibition brings together a combination of printed pattern books, drawings, textile samples, costumes, paintings, and various other works of art to evoke the colorful world in which the Renaissance textile pattern books first emerged and functioned.
