Title: VMFA Richmond VA-Forbidden City Imperial Treasures From the Palace Museum
Post by: joearp on December 29, 2014, 03:48:16 pm
The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, VA has an exhibition- Forbidden City  Imperial Treasures from the Palace Museum, Beijing.  It features around 200 works, paintings, gold and silver objects, jade pieces, lacquer ware, ceramics and textiles.  It will run through Jan 11, 2015.  There are only two snuff bottles- a nephrite, dark green jade with black mottle and an enamel over brass bottle with a scene of a mother and boy listening to a bamboo flute. These bottles are dated from 1736 to 1795. There is also a lovely painting of Empress Dowager Cixi Taking Snuff. There are many fine pieces in this exhibition. I enjoyed the exhibition very much and wanted to inform others.  There is a very nice Catalogue with over 208 color illustrations.  The ISBN  Number is 978-1934351-06-2.
