The Museum’s study rooms are open to visitors throughout the week to see works not currently on display, but why not try one of these special sessions to introduce you to the departmental study rooms?
With Dr Weimin He
2–3pm Thursday 21 November & Friday 6 December
Explore the Ashmolean’s outstanding collection of contemporary Chinese prints. You will be able to have a close look at a selection of prints and find out more about this important collection.
