“As you can see this object is covered with overglaze enamels of red, blue, and gold. This is the signature palette of old Imari style porcelain, first created in western Japan around the 1690s and got worldwide popularity in the 18th century, particularly in Europe.” – Xiaoyi Diana Yang, PhD Candidate


Although our Gallery is closed and classes and events have moved online, our commitment to the study of the past through objects remains central to our operation. In this series, a kind of mashup of Neil MacGregor’s History of the World in 100 Objects and the Bicentennial Minutes, one person talks about one object for one minute. Videos feature BGC faculty, students, staff, fellows, and alums. Follow us on Instagram at @bardgradcenter for the latest video.
