Highlights of the Daghlian Collection of Chinese Art
November 19, 2014 – January 10, 2015
The exhibition focuses on 60 objects, primarily ceramic, from the Daghlian collection. Also on display will be pieces by Queens College ceramics faculty and students who have studied the Daghlian collection and created their own artwork in response.
According to Distinguished Professor of History Morris Rossabi: “The arts of China yield vivid and appealing insights about its economy, politics, religions, society, history, and culture, and offer a remarkable guide to the development of Chinese civilization. Visitors can scarcely gain a better introduction to Chinese culture than by examining its works of art.”
