More than 40 years after Max Loehr published the first comprehensive catalogue of the Grenville L. Winthrop collection of archaic Chinese jades, the Harvard Art Museums present a new book featuring highlights of the collection by Jenny F. So. To mark this new publication, So will share how her research and ideas have benefited from the nearly half-century of archaeological discoveries and technical investigations related to jade, and the surprises that came with hands-on object study. She will also discuss the broader questions raised by this new knowledge and their relevance in collection-based teaching and research at a university museum such as Harvard’s. The lecture will take place in Menschel Hall, Lower Level. Please enter the museums via the entrance on Broadway. Doors will open at 5:30pm. Free admission, but seating is limited.
