Thursday, March 21| Reception 5:30PM, Gallery Walk 6PM
Join specialist Helen Eagles from the Asian Works of Art Department for a gallery walk and discussion about the Chinese textiles from the London textile collection of Nancy Murphy featured in the March 22 Asian Works of Art auction.
Primarily dating to the end of the Qing dynasty, the collection showcases purses, fan cases, and collars. The accessories are embellished and embroidered in a variety of stitches with decorations rich in blessings for the wearer, and provide an excellent introduction to the wider symbolism and techniques unique to Chinese textiles.
All are welcome. This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
