WYVERN AREA STUDY DAYS 2020 - DAY 1 - The Visual Art of Power and Rank at the Chinese Imperial Court David Rosier Wednesday 22 January 2020

Throughout the 2000 year history of imperial rule the Chinese Emperors utilized the visual arts to not just enhance the culture of the Empire but also as a tool that defined their power and intellectual status.

David Rosier has prepared a special Study Day for Wyvern, which will take us on a journey through the costumes devised to define rank, court paintings and portraiture and the fine art collections of the Emperor Qianlong (1735-1796).

David Rosier is an accredited Arts Society lecturer and a well-known expert on the costume, culture and art of the Chinese Imperial Court.

Venue The Headley Lecture Theatre, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. (10.30am - 3.30pm)

Price £38 per day or £114 for the series. Includes coffee and sandwich lunch.
