The Online Chinese Scholar’s Object Show
We are proud to present our first online exhibition, featuring 16 scholar’s objects, each carefully chosen to fulfil the needs of the Chinese scholar – from brushes to brushpots, ink-cakes to inkstones, each object served a purpose and would have commonly been found in a scholar’s studio during the Qing dynasty.
Visit our website Nicholas Grindley from 1st - 31st October to view.
