Story and Bina photograph tapestry from the UWM Art Collection

Curator Christa Story and UWM Art History Gallery Undergraduate Intern April Bina took great care in hanging a ca. 1600 French Altar Frontal in the UWM Art History Gallery.  The tapestry was on view for Associate Professor Tanya Tiffany’s ARTHIST 730: Gender and Art in the Spanish Empire, and Story and Bina took the opportunity to photograph it. The twelve foot tapestry was donated to the UWM Art Collection in 1983 by Joseph and Ilma Uihlein; this is its first time out of the vault since 2001.
