Functional and beautiful: Exhibit showcases common objects of the historic elite

COLUMBIA — In a small, beige-walled room at the Museum of Art and Archaeology, Kelly Archer had her first look at a trio of micromosaics, framed and under glass. The biggest one, no larger than a silver dollar, depicts the Coliseum of Rome in intricate detail. With the help of a magnifying glass, Archer got a better look at the hundreds of colored bits forming the rows of columns and arches.

The tiny representations of places abroad can be found in “The Fine Art of Living: Luxury Objects from the East and West,” currently at MU’s Museum of Art and Archaeology. The exhibit features an array of useful and beautiful objects once owned by the noble elite from around the world.

Japanese woodblock prints illustrate calming scenes

“The peace accompanying the beginning of evening happens to me with this print,” said Mary Pixley, associate curator at the MU Museum of Art and Archaeology. She was gazing at a woodblock print of an evening water scene by Tsuichiya Koitsu (1879–1949) and was lost in it for a moment. Her face and eyes softened as she described the effect the image has on her, “And then you feel night falling with the last light of the sun touching the edge of the clouds.”
