This biography of Serik Davtyan, a prominent mid-twentieth-century historian of Armenian arts and crafts, evokes her scientific work interrupted by her condemnation in 1937 and her long relegation till 1955.  The author notably insists on the quality of her studies of medieval and early modern Armenian embroidery, and suggests the significance of her personal archive.  The paper is enriched with the publication of a short manuscript text on the history of Armenian costume.
