Textile scholar, Dr. Elena Phipps, will discuss the origin of the insect red colorant cochineal, its early use in Precolumbian ritual and textiles from Mexico and Peru, and trace the spread of the American dyestuff through global interchange following the Spanish arrival to the New World in the 16th century. Drawing on examples including Precolumbian textiles, European tapestries and Chinese hangings, as well as paintings by Rembrandt and Van Gogh — the lecture presents the result of art historical and scientific research that documents the use of this red-colored treasure throughout the world.
