A Couturier at Court: Making Spanish Fashion in the Age of Velázquez

Amanda Wunder, Associate Professor, City University of New York; Lehman College and The Graduate Center

This talk goes behind the scenes at the Royal Palace in seventeenth-century Madrid to reconstruct the life and work of a long-forgotten tailor who dressed the court of Philip IV and whose creations—immortalized in Diego Velázquez’s greatest works—shaped the look and legacy of Golden-Age Spain.
