Blast from the Past
On display at Altfield Gallery from 26 September until 12 October are some stunning examples of furniture pieces from the 18th and 19th centuries, which exemplify the lifestyle of the Chinese literati. Literature, calligraphy, painting, music, and chess were all popular pursuits of the educated class, and this was reflected in the furniture that was chosen for their homes. The group on display includes side tables and stands, painting tables, chairs and day beds, with a strong focus on simplicity, quality of workmanship, and a balance between function and aesthetics. 2537 6370 |
