In 1533, Netherlandish artist Pieter Coecke van Aelst (1502–1550) traveled to Istanbul, presumably accompanying Habsburg ambassador Cornelis de Schepper on his first diplomatic mission. Twenty years later, Coecke’s widow, Mayken Verhulst, printed a monumental woodcut frieze by Coecke chronicling his journey to the Ottoman city. We now invite you to follow in Coecke’s footsteps and travel together with Talitha Maria G. Schepers, curator of the exhibition Imagine Me and You: Dutch and Flemish Encounters with the Islamic World, 1450–1750 (May 18–August 18, 2024), in a close examination of this monumental work.


Led by:

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