Courting Favor: Objects of Diplomacy and the China Trade

Lisa Rotondo-McCord is Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs at the New Orleans Museum of Art. Gift-giving has always been part of diplomacy throughout the world. Using objects from the collection of the New Orleans Museum of Art, including porcelains, tea caddies, and clocks, she will explore this practice in the context of the China Trade. The works will illuminate the intertwined histories of Europe s relationship to China, the role of the luxury collectible as a manifestation of power and standing, and the transfer of technology during the 19th century.
