Friends of Decorative Arts Lecture: Japanese cloisonné enamels
Fredric T. Schneider, an independent scholar living in New York City, will introduce Japanese cloisonné enamels, which are some of the world’s most exquisite objects. They are also extremely difficult to create. Mr. Schneider will trace the development of the medium from its inception to the present day and will highlight contemporary examples. He has researched and collected these works for more than 20 years and is the author of The Art of Japanese Cloisonné Enamel: History, Techniques and Artists, 1600 to the Present, one of the foremost studies in the field. He has lectured on this subject at universities, museums, and other venues in the United States, Asia, and Europe.
Friends of Decorative Arts
The decorative arts—fine furniture, jewelry, ceramics, and glass—are all around us and in the Museum. FODA expands understanding of their variety and beauty. Plus, you will make new friends at the meetings. Annual dues are $20 in addition to Museum membership.
FODA programs are held on the second Tuesday of the month at 2 p.m. during season. Non-FODA members can attend for $5, plus MFA admission. Carolyn Nygren is the volunteer coordinator.
