Join us for a very special Circles Presents, Gifts of Gail and Stephen Rineberg: A Passion for Chinese Ceramics.
Since the time Dr. Janet Baker arrived at the Museum in 2000, Gail and Stephen Rineberg were one of the most active collectors of Asian art at the highest level. They strove to trace the scientific and aesthetic development of Chinese ceramics from ancient times until the 14th century. They carefully collected fine examples of each type of ware, with variations on form and design elements. They savored the opportunity to learn deeply about the subject, and shared trips to China with their children and grandchildren to foster an appreciation throughout their family for the traditions of this great civilization. Join us to share this legacy through scholarship and personal reminiscence with Gail Rineberg as a tribute to Steve’s own lectures on the subject.
