Be the first to know about new artworks joining the NGV Collection and hear some of the stories they connect with across time and place. In this episode, we share the fascinating story of the construction and inspiration behind a rare series of 11 Art Nouveau figures called The Scarf Dance (Le Jeu de l’Écharpe), made by one of the greats of porcelain manufacturing, Sèvres. The series is a generous gift from Krystyna Campbell-Pretty AM and Family.

This program will be presented online. The broadcast link will be shared here the day before the program. To receive a reminder email please register your attendance.
