On December 10, the WAG publishes the first of its five Focus series. Each publication examines a distinct strength of the Gallery’s decorative arts collection.

Contributors to the Focus series include Kathleen Campbell, WAG Curator Emerita of Decorative Arts; Ross Fox, Royal Ontario Museum Associate Curator of Early Canadian Decorative Arts; consultant, author, and curator Elizabeth Collard (1917–2001); and Philippa Glanville, the former Academic Director at Waddesdon Manor (England). The series included five publications.
