Scholarly Treasures: Donations in Honor of Harrie A. Vanderstappen

March 1–April 21, 1991

This exhibition focused on many important periods of East Asian art by featuring eight donations to the permanent collection in honor of the respected scholar of Asian art and former professor in the University of Chicago's Department of Art, Harrie A. Vanderstappen.

Chinese neolithic pottery, Shang dynasty marble carvings, 18th-century Japanese prints, and painted Chinese and Japanese scrolls from different periods provided a small cross-section of this important part of the Smart Museum's collection.
