CURRENT EXHIBITION
Anthony du Boulay Chinese Ceramic

CHINESE CERAMICS FROM THE ANTHONY DU BOULAY COLLECTION 
This exhibition features over twenty Chinese ceramics recently donated to the College by Anthony du Boulay (C, 1943-46). The collection is especially rich in works from the Song Dynasty (960-1279), often regarded as the golden age of Chinese ceramic art. It also focusses on the 17th and 18th centuries, especially pieces that show the impact of contact between China and Europe during this period.

THIS EXHIBITION WILL RUN UNTIL END OF APRIL 2022

CURRENT EXHIBITION
Partbooks

THE WINCHESTER PARTBOOKS, 1564 - 66

This set of four musical manuscripts contains a selection of Italian and English madrigals and French chansons composed during the sixteenth century.  The bindings are decorated with the arms of Queen Elizabeth I, and were almost certainly a gift to her from King Erik XIV of Sweden, who commissioned them in Antwerp.  These rare and beautiful volumes have been described as ‘one of England’s musical treasures’.

THIS EXHIBITION WILL RUN UNTIL 30TH APRIL 2022
