Exhibition on display in the Hermitage Changing Galleries from December 13th through January 7th.

Selections from the Sloane Middle Eastern Collection
Between 1941 and 1952 Florence Sloane actively pursued objects from around the Middle East. Her connections with Dikran Kelekian, a prominent antiques dealer in New York, helped nurture her understanding of the region and its wares. This exhibit will display, side by side, art purchased by Mrs. Sloane along with documentation of the conversations that secured their acquisition.

Members who attend the Members Holiday Party on December 13th will have the opportunity to preview the exhibition.
