The Morgan is fortunate to own three sets of silver and enameled covers from this workshop, now on exhibition in Mr. Morgan’s Library. Join Sylvie L. Merian, scholar and Reader Services Librarian at the Morgan, for an illustrated lecture discussing what is known about these silversmiths and the Dutch woodcuts used as inspiration by some of the craftsmen featuring dozens of examples of these splendid objects now found in collections worldwide.
