Triangular Plaque with Decoration of Two Striding Tigers and a Mythical Creature in the Form of a Human-Headed Leopard, repoussé gold, China, 5th-3rd century BCE,  Harvard Art Museums/Arthur M. Sackler Museum, Bequest of Grenville L. Winthrop, 1943.52.84.C
Art Study Center Seminar at Home: Chinese Gold from the Winthrop Collection
When Grenville Lindall Winthrop left his extensive collection to the Fogg Art Museum in 1943, it contained three gold plaques dating to China’s Warring States period (475–221 BCE). Never before displayed the public, the plaques remained a mystery until recent excavations and archival records shed new light on their origins. In this seminar, curator Sarah Laursen investigates the decoration and function of the gold plaques, as well as the story of how they reached the museum.

Led by:
Sarah Laursen, Alan J. Dworsky Associate Curator of Chinese Art, Division of Asian and Mediterranean Art
