Asian Art and History
Silk Roads to Mongolia

Artis—Naples Lifelong Learning

Nancy S. Steinhardt, Ph.D., Professor of East Asian Art and Curator of Chinese Art, University of Pennsylvania

The routes to Mongolia are not as well-defined as those across Eurasia, but silk did come to Mongolia, along with metalwork, subjects in murals, and architecture from the last centuries B.C.E. through the 18th century. This lecture focuses on discoveries in tombs of the seventh to ninth centuries, and it will introduce major discoveries with strong connections to China from earlier and later times.

This presentation is part of the Asian Art and History series.

Lecture in John and Jeanne Rowe Performance and Learning Center, lunch in Signature Event Space.
