Upcoming Met Perspectives talk about the Christie’s sale of an Assyrian relief

Assyrian relief from Nimrud, Iraq, c. 883-859 BCE, sold by Christie’s on October 31, 2018.

Next Friday (January 18) I will be giving a brief Met Perspectives gallery talk about Christie’s record-setting auction last October of a Neo-Assyrian relief, formerly at the Virginia Theological Seminary. It is part of a series of three gallery talks on ‘Art and Trade,’ and will take place at 6:00 in Gallery 401.
