Framing Chinese Art for Western Collections

Framing Chinese Art for Western Collections

Date: Thursday, February 11, 2016

Explore some of the ways that objects in the Walters’ outstanding collection of Chinese art—from hanging scrolls to mounted porcelains—have been modified over time for display in European and American homes. This informative talk will be led by Robert Mintz, Chief Curator and Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Quincy Scott Curator of Asian Art.

Thai Textile Preservation

Thai Textile Preservation

Date: Sunday, March 20, 2016

Time: 02:00 PM–03:30 PM

Learn about work being undertaken by Julia Brennan, textile conservator, consultant to the Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles, and owner of Caring for Textiles in Washington, D.C. to study and preserve Thai textiles. Following the lecture, see a textile banner from the Walters’ Doris Duke Collection of Southeast Asian Art that is over 66 feet in length and has never been on view. Today, thanks in part to the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the Walters has one of the largest and finest collections of Thai bronzes, paintings, and objects outside of Thailand.
