Book Talk and Signing: The Art of Paper

Caroline Fowler, interim director of the Research and Academic Program, discusses her newly published book, The Art of Paper: From the Holy Land to the Americas, and signs copies. In the late medieval and Renaissance period, paper transformed society—not only through its role in the invention of print but also in the way it influenced artistic production. The Art of Paper tells the history of this medium in the context of the artist’s workshop from the thirteenth century, when it was imported to Europe from Africa, to the sixteenth century, when European paper was exported to the colonies of New Spain.

The talk is free. Books are available in the Museum Store and can be purchased at the event.
