Treasures from the Trammell and Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art: Magic and Mystery in Taos

Gallery: Peter & Madeleine Martin Gallery
The Trammell and Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art located in Dallas, Texas is considered one of the most comprehensive and important collections of Eastern art in the region. Assembled by the Crow family over the past 30 years, the collection features art from China, Japan, India, Southeast Asia and the Himalaya region. The Harwood Museum of Art has arranged for a loan of over 35 objects from this collection including works in ivory, jade, bronze, glass, porcelain, textile, stone, lacquer ware, and wood. The objects selected for the Harwood exhibition cover a period spanning three thousand years and include a Bronze bell (Chun Yu) from the Warring States Period ca. 5th 3rd century B.C. The Crow Collection of Asian Arts holdings include excellent examples of Chinese jade and decorative arts from the late Qing dynasty (1644-1911), Japanese Edo (1615-1868) and Meiji (1868-1912) paintings and decorative arts, examples of the rarely seen art of the Himalayas (Nepal and Tibet), as well as an impressive collection of Indian and Southeast Asian sculptures. The Harwood Museum of Arts Magic & Mystery in Taos exhibition will showcase a varied selection of many of these objects. Trammell S. Crow, president of the Crow Family Foundation explains: Over the past 30 years, my family has admired and collected Asian art because of its craftsmanship and pervasive spirituality . . .
