The monumental work was acquired by the Museum in 1935 and is among the most significant Renaissance tapestries in America. The installation follows a nearly two-year conservation process by De Wit Royal Manufacturer of Tapestry in Belgium, known for its leading edge restoration techniques for historic textiles. The exhibition, which extends through September 18, 2016, will allow visitors to experience the intricate details of the tapestry up close.
