“China’s Great History as Told by Two 18th Century Screens”
for AAA Members and Special Guests
Explore China’s past dynasties as it is revealed in two 18th century painted folding screens. Each was a major workshop commission, being painted with lacquer on lacquer, an extremely difficult artistic technique. As their stories are revealed in this premier viewing of an educational documentary, the hidden messages and ancient techniques used to create these beautiful works of art are revived. It has taken a team of collectors, expert researchers, translators and historians working together for several years to uncover some of their mysteries. Presented by lacquer specialist and documentarian, Carla Stansifer, formerly of the Denver Art Museum, and Cassandra Lohr of China Art Search, LLC.
