Origins and Traces of the Indian Subcontinent: The Anne Romoff Gross Collection

Tue April 18, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Part of the Gardiner Signature Lecture Series
The Ann Walker Bell Lecture

Daniel Chen, Adjunct Curator of Chinese Ceramics, brings to life the spectacular collection of Chinese blue and white porcelain gifted to the Gardiner Museum by Janice Gross Stein and Susan Gross Soloman, in memory of their mother Anne Romoff Gross.

The collection dates to the larger assemblage of Chinese porcelain procured in 19th century India, and offers a unique glimpse into the history of ceramic use and consumption for the Indian market. Learn about the various owners who have left their marks of connoisseurship on the collection and the cultural significance of Chinese porcelain in India.

Please join us for a reception hosted by Janice Gross Stein and Susan Gross Solomon following the lecture in the Terrace Room.

Please note: There will be no cash bar available before the lecture.
