Cherry Blossoms and Dragons
A presentation of Japanese, Chinese and Asian inspired pieces of the Anna S. Houston Collection.
Miss Anna certainly had an eye for the beautiful and the fanciful, collecting thousands of pieces of glass and ceramics. It is curious to note her fascination with the Orient… or is it? During the Victorian period, when China was a mysterious, yet to be explored place by the west, an interest in this strange place was created. We see in this exhibit all of these and more, a reflection of what WE in the west believe to be Japan and China.
