Gorgeous gowns, groundbreaking research. Painted Cloth: Fashion and Ritual in Colonial Latin is a feast for the eyes—and the mind. Painted Cloth looks at the social roles of textiles and how they are represented in artworks across 18th-century Latin America.

For this special members-only salon, take a closer look at Painted Cloth with curator Rosario I. Granados and consider what these richly textured works can tell us about this period of history. There will be an audience Q&A, so bring your questions—curiosity welcome!
