Join Talitha Maria G. Schepers, curator of the exhibition Imagine Me and You, for a deep dive into the wondrous world of tulips, the tulip trade, and Tulipomania.

Why are there so many Dutch tulip drawings? What prompted the Dutch tulip craze in the 1630s? What are “broken tulips”? And what role did the tulip—a symbol of the Netherlands—play in Habsburg-Ottoman diplomacy? Discover all this and much more in this talk.

This talk is offered in conjunction with the exhibition Imagine Me and You: Dutch and Flemish Encounters with the Islamic World, 1450–1750 (May 18–August 18, 2024).

Led by:

Talitha Maria G. Schepers, Stanley H. Durwood Foundation Curatorial Fellow, Division of European and American Art, and exhibition curator

Please check in with museum staff at the Visitor Services desk in the Calderwood Courtyard to request to join the talk. Talks are limited to 18 people and are available on a first-come, first-served basis; no registration is required.
