Art Study Center Seminar at Home: The Blues—Cobalt and Indigo in Asian Art


Friday, March 4, 2022, 11:00am to 12:00pm


Harvard Art Museums—Online

In Asia, the mineral cobalt has long been used as a colorant in ceramic glazes, and indigo dye, derived from plants of the Indigofera genus, has been employed in textiles and paints. In this Art Study Center Seminar, a curator, conservators, and a conservation scientist consider the history of blue through the ceramics, textiles, and paintings now on view in the Picturing the Lives of Women installation in the Asian art galleries.
