Join Chief Curator/Gary R. Libby Curator of Art, Ruth Grim virtually on ZOOM for a lecture on the new exhibit, East Meets West: Decorative Fans from Europe and China in the Collection. The MOAS collection contains rare examples of 18th and 19th-century French fans that display the shift in decorative style from the Rococo period of the pre-revolutionary aristocracy to the Napoleonic era in the early 19th century. It also has a rarely-exhibited small collection of Chinese paddle fans which share some similarities with their Western counterparts but also differ in significant ways. These small, personal works of art will be examined for their interesting details and beautiful artistic expression from past decades.
Free for MOAS Members. Must be a MOAS Member to attend.
