Glessner House Lecture: The Glessners' Kutani Ware Bowl and Chicago's Take on Japonisme

Tuesday May 14, 2013 at 7:00pm
$10 per person / $8 for museum members
R.S.V.P. to 312-326-1480

The Glessners were current in the music they supported, the books they read, and the style in which they collected prints, picture frames, glass, ceramics, and porcelains. They were among the early connoisseurs of Japonisme in Chicago and their ownership of a Kutani porcelain bowl speaks to their leadership in taste. The recently restored Kutani bowl and Chicago's nationally influential give and take on Japonisme will be the subject of this illustrated talk by Rolf Achilles.
