Featured Video: Damascus Room

This video covers the recent and more distant history of an eighteenth-century period room and its remarkable journey from Damascus to Los Angeles. It documents a four-year long process of study and conservation at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Now restored, the room exudes a kind of grace, warmth and beauty, which is in keeping with its original function as a place for welcoming guests.

 

LACMA's Artists on Art videos offer insights into works in the museum's encyclopedic collection that have inspired and informed artists working today.
