Spanning a thousand years of Chinese art from the eighth through the seventeenth century, the lecture will examine multiple layers of meaning—style, technique, symbolism, past traditions, and the artist’s personal circumstances—in the treatment of landscapes, flowers, birds, figures, religious subjects, and calligraphies in order to illuminate the main goal of every Chinese artist: to capture not only the outer appearance of a subject but also its inner essence.

Victoria will share stories from the life of her father as well as those of his circle including Edward G. Robinson, Stanley Marcus, Fanny Brice, and more. She will speak about the vital role of the art collector as tastemaker, guardian and perpetuator of the visual arts for future generations, and museum advocate. But perhaps even more importantly, she will also remind us that collecting art can be one of life's greatest adventures!
