April's Tuesday Tea lecture will be delivered by Kee Il Choi, Jr., an independent curator and PhD candidate at Leiden University, The Netherlands. His talk, entitled “Vases and Virtue, Porcelain and Diplomacy: The Enlightenment Journey of Henri-Léonard Bertin (1720–92) and Joseph Amiot (1718–93),” focuses on "Vases Chinois," a rare, 18th-century album of watercolor paintings of Chinese imperial porcelains. The volume is on loan from the Clarence Ward Art Library and currently on view in the South Ambulatory.
This talk is co-sponsored by the Allen Memorial Art Museum and Oberlin College Libraries.
This lecture is part of our Tuesday Tea program, an ongoing series of gallery talks that highlight works in the permanent collection or in current exhibitions on the second Tuesday of each month. We hope to see you there!
