The Tanagras, discovered in the late 19th century, revolutionized European understanding of ancient dress practices. They provided crucial evidence for Greek attire, shaping our modern typologies and nomenclature. Dr. Mireille M. Lee's Laszlo-Excalibur Lecture explores how dress shaped feminine identity in Classical and Hellenistic Greece, linking ancient practices to late 19th-century fashion.
The John Laszlo, M.D. Excalibur Lecture was established through the generosity of Dr. Laszlo’s family and friends.
’‘Recasting Antiquity: Whistler, Tanagra, and the Female Form’‘ galleries will be open for viewing from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
