Clothing is a powerful marker of identity. This is as true today as it was for people in the past. A set of portraits created by artist Vicente Albán in 1783 provides a unique glimpse into women’s dress from eighteenth-century Quito. In this fascinating talk Laura Beltran-Rubio, doctoral candidate in American Studies, will discuss Albán’s works, exploring how dress defined and empowered women across social classes.
