When Betsy Nathan lived in Beijing, art and furniture were her key to learning about Chinese history, culture, language, and trade. Her adventures culminated in what is now Pagoda Red, the gallery she opened upon her return to the United States in 1997. With locations in Chicago and Winnetka, IL, the gallery specializes in 19th-century Chinese furniture and decorative arts for the home and garden, and also represents a number of emerging artists.
