Portfolio: Andean Textiles

In 1967, Krannert Art Museum acquired a significant collection of ancient Andean art from Fred Olsen, an industrial chemist whose fascination with the nature of creativity and abstract design drew him to these highly expressive works of art. Here are the textile objects from that collection of over 600 pieces, representing a wide range of cultures and aesthetic styles that flourished throughout the coastal and highland regions of Peru from 1500 B.C.E. to the Spanish conquest of 1532, including Chavin, Paracas, Nazca, Moche, Wari, Huwara, Lambayeque, Chimu, Chancay, and Inka.
