Among the treasures in the monastery of Studenica in Serbia is a large silk hanging, woven for the Ottoman Sultan Bayezid I (r. 1389-1402). It is the earliest known Ottoman textile and is among the earliest works of Ottoman art of any sort. Dr. Phillips from the University of Virginia will offer an overview of the silk’s historical context, discuss its technology and material, and its later life in Studenica and elsewhere.
