    Robert D. Mowry, Alan J. Dworsky Curator of Chinese Art, Division of Asian and Mediterranean Art

    This illustrated lecture will introduce the Art Museums’ newly acquired 8th–10th-century Nepalese bronze sculpture of the Buddha, placing it in the context of early Nepalese sculpture and exploring its relationship to classical Indian sculpture of the Gupta period (320–600). Photographed in the 1930s, published in the 1940s, and once owned by Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller III, the sculpture has an enviable provenance and ranks among the Art Museums’ most important recent acquisitions.

    This popular series of special evenings features talks by curators, after-hours viewing of the galleries, live music, conversation, and refreshments. Enjoy all the Art Museums have to offer! Evenings begin at 6pm; lectures begin at 6:30pm.
