Additional information

On this tour, Varya Lyapneva ’26 will explore the role of fabric in the history of painting and sculpture, looking closely at three works. They are Red and Pink (1925), a painting commissioned from Georgia O’Keeffe by the Cheney Brothers Silk Manufacturing Company; Edgar Degas’s Little Dancer, Aged Fourteen (1880), a sculpture that radically incorporates diverse materials, including a real tulle skirt; and Mama Ocllo (1835–45), a painting from Spanish colonial Peru that depicts the mythic Inkan queen credited with teaching Inka women how to weave cloth.
