Imperial Radiance: Luxury Arts in the Land of the Incas

Located at the Getty. 

Joanne Pillsbury of the Metropolitan Museum of Art explores the development of luxury culture in the ancient Andes, from the earliest ornaments in gold created over 3,000 years ago in Peru, to the spectacular achievements of artists in the royal courts of the Inca, including Machu Picchu. Complementing the exhibition Golden Kingdoms: Luxury and Legacy in the Ancient Americas, this talk casts new light on the brilliance of ancient American artists and their legacy.
