Gift of Michael B. Weisbrod, 1989 to the Metropolitan Museum
As an old client of Michael I would love to have a copy of the exhibition catalogue. I hope one day to visit his beautiful Hong Kong space. How nice to have him back. Meanwhile I am enjoying the beautiful pieces my husband and I brought from him.
I thank Michael Weisbrod of New York for his boldness in acquiring masterpieces as seen in pieces like the "Huge Camel and Foreign Rider", the unique pair of "Northern Ch'i Warriors" and the "Wei Civil Official".
