Friday Morning Lecture & Tour Series: Renaissance Chopines and Baroque Heels
The taks of the Renaissance and Baroque portrait painter was not simply to capture the sitter's likeness but to also portray their social standing and status. By starting with footwear, Elizabeth Semmelhack, Senior Curator, The Beta Shoe Museum, Toronto, Canada, will explore how issues as varied as New World exploration to Enlightenment thinking influenced the construction of gender and the proclamation of wealth through dress.
