On February 21, 2020, a lecture entitled “Orientalism and Armenian Carpets” was held at the History Museum of Armenia. The theme of the presentation were the numerous images of Armenian carpets on the canvases of Western European orientalists of the 19th century, an issue that is poorly explained and requires a more extensive and comprehensive study.

Lecturer: Asmik Hmayakyan, Ph.D., Senior Researcher in the Institute of Oriental Studies, Associate Professor of Design and Fine Arts of the National Polytechnic University of Armenia
