The Invention of Glory: Afonso V and the Pastrana Tapestries

Friday, Nov 30, 2012 10:00a to 5:00p

Monumental in scale,the Pastrana Tapestries are one of the finest examples of Gothic tapestry in existence. The four, 36-foot-long tapestries are on view together for the first time. Expertly woven in Belgium, the Pastrana Tapestries are singular for their depiction of a contemporary subject: the military victories of Portugal's King Afonso V (1432-1481) in North Africa. PEM is the exclusive Northeast venue for The Invention of Glory, which will be presented as an immersive, single gallery.
