LACMA’s Laquered Boxes – Worth Some Time

Kathryn Santner at LACMA posted an in-depth analysis of Mexican laquered sewing boxes, which are part of the museum’s growing collection of Latin American decorative arts. Her article is worth a slow read – and the objects are certainly worth a slow look the next time you visit LACMA.

Thanks to Tyler Green’s Wednesday Links for pointing us to this great post.

  1. I imagine that the process to create this work was quite slow and certainly deserves a slow look. It is remarkable that a sewing box so small has such a rich history and represents a beautiful blending of cultures.

    This is a great “practice” piece to prepare for Slow Art Day!
