This is a follow-up volume to "Tapestry in the Baroque: Threads of Splendor", which was published to accompany the critically acclaimed exhibition held at the Metropolitan Museum in October 2007. It features essays written by renowned scholars in the field, presenting the results of detailed research, both exploring the manufacture of tapestries designed by outstanding artists and woven of costly materials, and casting new light on the commissioning and collecting of these precious objects during the seventeenth century.
