Gallery Talk: John Yeon as Collector

Join the Portland Art Museum for a gallery talk with exhibition curators Maribeth Graybill and Dawson Carr as they examine some of the masterworks from John Yeon’s wide-ranging collection of Asian and European art. A self-taught connoisseur, Yeon approached collecting with a designer’s eye, seeking out objects of the finest craftsmanship to adorn and complement his architectural interiors.
This talk is presented in conjunction with Quest for Beauty: The Architecture, Landscapes, and Collections of John Yeon, on view May 13 through September 3, 2017.
