Join British ceramicist and author Edmund de Waal at the J. Paul Getty Museum on Tuesday, October 5, as he explores the ascent and decline of a Jewish dynasty and the survival of objects, in connection with the publication of his new book, The Hare with Amber Eyes: A Hidden Inheritance.

Using examples from his family art collections—some pieces of which are now at the Getty—as well as the story of the netsuke that he inherited, de Waal examines how we can understand collecting as a family story.

A Hidden Inheritance: Objects, Memories, and Collections is presented at the Harold M. Williams Auditorium at the Getty Center, 1200 Getty Center Drive, on Tuesday, October 5, at 7:00 p.m. The lecture is free, but reservations are recommended. Call (310) 440-7300, or visit www.getty.edu
