Painting a Tang Court Lady in the 20th Century
What can we learn about this court lady from the Tang dynasty (618–907) from a 1994 painting by a Chinese artist who was inspired by a 13th-century painter? Join this Takeout Tuesday conversation with docent Sherlyn Leong to learn more about this woman and the genre of figure painting.
ABOUT TAKEOUT TUESDAYS
“Take out” a taste of art! Join museum docents and fellow art lovers for interactive lunchtime encounters with selected artworks from the collection. We’ll gather in a Zoom meeting to look closely at compelling works using high-resolution images and learn some fun facts. Each week will focus on a different topic. Simply turn on your microphone to join the discussion. See a complete list of Takeout Tuesdays topics.
Closed captions are available. Takeout Tuesdays will be offered every Tuesday while social distancing requirements curtail our on-site programming.
