Jennifer Casler Price, curator for Asian and non-Western art at the Kimbell Art Museum, will present a lecture entitled The Kimbell on the Road: Buddhist Sculpture and Paintings as part of the Museum's Art in Context series.

In her lecture, Price will discuss several objects in the Asian collection that have traveled from the Kimbell, either on loan to exhibitions or for specialized conservation treatments, and the subsequent discoveries that have come to light regarding these works. In one such case, during the restoration of a rare and important 14th-century Japanese hanging scroll, Vimalikirti for Yuima-e Service at Tônomine Temple, research confirmed the historical identity of three key figures depicted in the scroll that were previously misidentified or unknown. This later led to a reattribution of the original function of the scroll, resulting in a retitling of the painting.
