The Americas become a major destination for objects made in Asia beginning in the 16th century. Asian influences can be found as far apart as Boston and Peru. This lecture examines the profound influence of Asia on the arts of the colonial Americas exploring how craftsmen across North, Central and South America adapted Asian styles in a range of media—from furniture to silverwork, textiles, ceramics and painting.
