Asia Week in New York is a powerful magnet for enthusiasts of Asian art each spring. This year the OCS will therefore offer two events in New York to coincide with Asia Week, besides the regular programme of lectures and handling sessions that takes place in London: a behind-the-scenes viewing of some of the outstanding Chinese ceramics at the Brooklyn Museum, currently in storage due to renovation of the galleries; and a short symposium on various aspects of Kangxi porcelain in cooperation with Sotheby’s. (For details, please see page 6 of this programme). In London we will again present new research on a wide range of topics, with drinks before or after each lecture provided by our sponsors, which are listed below. The OCS Tour to Naples will take place in April 2014, and a handling session of members’ objects in May.

The autumn of 2013 saw a rich programme of lectures: Professor Ôhashi Kôji from the Kyushu Ceramic Museum presented the latest findings from excavations undertaken at Edo Castle, currently the Imperial Palace, Tokyo; OCS Council Members Dr. Nigel Wood and Dr Stacey Pierson gave a lucid introduction on celadon wares; Derek Gillman, President of the Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia, re-dated and re-attributed the life-size sancai figures of ‘Imperial Luohans’ of Zhongdu in a Christie’s/OCS lecture; in the first Sonia Lightfoot Paintings Lecture Dr. Howard Rogers, President of Kaikodo LLC, introduced our members to Chinese painting, concentrating on exoticism under the Song Emperor Huizong; Dr Minna Törmä, of Christie’s Education and the University of Glasgow, introduced Osvald Sirén and his British friends and colleagues; and Angela Howard, Director of Heirloom & Howard, spoke about the English and their taste for Chinese armorial porcelain. The lectures were very well attended throughout and I do hope to see a full house again very often during the coming Spring season.

Sadly, I have to report the passing away of three long-standing, supportive members of the Society, Johanna Austin, Sir Michael Butler and Robert Kleiner.

Regina Krahl, President

Felicity Aylieff
Witnessing Change: The Jingdezhen Experience

Felicity Aylieff has been making large-scale porcelain vessels in Jingdezhen since 2006, working in collaboration with small family workshops and skilled craftsmen. In her lecture she will look at what took her to Jingdezhen, the challenges she faced making work in an unfamiliar culture, and how taking on these new experiences opened up opportunities and extended her creativity as an artist. She will discuss the types of work currently being made in the specialist studios and factories and illustrate the changing face of Jingdezhen, the transport, the impact of massive housing developments, through to scenes of everyday life.

Her own ceramics explore how techniques traditional to Chinese ceramic manufacture can inform contemporary work. Her focus is Blue and White painting and the decorative technique of ‘Famille Rose’ enamel painting: Fencai. Her research into both have included studying historical sources and object collections to understand the origins and development of these decorative techniques and the formulation and structure of imagery and patterns that were associated with their use, particularly that of Fencai. She is also engaged in practical investigations into the traditional techniques.

Felicity Aylieff studied Ceramics and Textiles at Bath Academy of Art, graduating in 1978, taught at Bedales School in Hampshire and became a regular visiting lecturer at numerous colleges including Goldsmiths College, London, before returning to Bath Spa University College (BSUC) in 1989 to lecture full time. In 1993 she took a career break to study for an MPhil research degree at the Royal College of Art. In 2001 she was made Professor of Ceramics at BSUC and in 2002 was appointed Senior Tutor in Ceramics and Glass at the Royal College of Art where she currently lectures. She serves on numerous committees, was Chair of the National Association of Ceramics in Higher Education, NACHE, and is currently national commissioner for the European Ceramic Context 2014 and organises the Discovery programme for Ceramic Art London.

She has had several major exhibitions, was shortlisted for the Jerwood Prize for ceramics in 2001 and is currently represented by Adrian Sassoon, Contemporary. Her ceramics are held by the V&A, London, Museum of Wales, Cardiff, Boston Museum of Fine Arts, USA, The Duke of Devonshire, Chatsworth House, York Museum and other international collections.


Tuesday 11th March, at 6.00 pm at the Society of Antiquaries
The Annual Woolf Jade Lecture and drinks reception sponsored by The Woolf Charitable Trust

Elinor Pearlstein, Associate Curator of Chinese Art, Art Institute of Chicago

Chinese Jades through the Sonnenschein Lens

Between about 1920 and 1935, Edward (1881-1935) and Louise (1884-1949) Sonnenschein of Chicago assembled an outstanding collection of ancient Chinese jade that remains a major strength of the Art Institute of Chicago and a destination for scholars throughout the world. However keenly analyzed today, its archaeological as well as art historical importance could barely be envisioned during the couple’s own lifetime. Earlier American collectors—most notably, Herber R. Bishop (1840-1902) of New York—focused on resplendent jades of late imperial China, and it was not until Charles Lang Freer (1854-1919) spearheaded the pursuit of pieces that were ancient as well as beautiful that those two qualities became an alluring combination.

Selected and catalogued by the brilliant ethnologist Berthold Laufer (1874-1934), Freer’s jades were first shown publically in 1917 at the Art Institute. China’s great antiquarian tradition of jade connoisseurship had defined Laufer’s pioneering work of five years earlier, Jade: A Study in Chinese Archaeology and Religion, as well as his effort to build a significant collection for the nearby Field Museum. The Sonnenscheins’ serious quest began as Laufer’s wound down and as appreciable numbers of newly unearthed jades first appeared on the Western art market. Their ventures coincided with those of Grenville Lindall Winthrop (1864-1943) and Alfred Fiske Pillsbury (1876-1950), whose collections were bequeathed, respectively, to Harvard University and the Minneapolis Institute of Art.

The Sonnenscheins’ endeavor was admirable but not solitary. They inherited the same traditions and shared many of the same sources as their most notable American contemporaries. This talk will explore the Sonnenscheins’ contributions, individual and collective, to the assemblage and scholarship of ancient Chinese jade in the early twentieth century.

Elinor Pearlstein has served as Associate Curator of Chinese Art at the Art Institute of Chicago since 1986, following ten years at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Her research on the Sonnenschein jades has been published in “Archival Perspectives on the Sonnenschein Collection,” Rosemary Scott, ed., Chinese Jades, Colloquies on Art and Archaeology in Asia no. 18 (1997), 223-62, as well as in Orientations, Arts of Asia, and the Bulletin of the Art Institute of Chicago. Recent work on Chicago’s jade and bronze collections is forthcoming in “Early Chicago Chronicles of Early Chinese Art,” Collectors, Collections, and Collecting the Arts of China: Histories and Challenges (Gainesville: University of Florida Press, 2014), 7-42.

This lecture will be followed by a drinks reception at the Society of Antiquaries, kindly sponsored by Jonathan Woolf, to which all members are warmly invited.

THE WOOLF COLLECTION OF IMPERIAL JADES – SPECIAL VIEWING

For OCS members only, a special viewing of the Woolf Collection of Imperial Chinese Jades will be available on the day of the lecture, between 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at Wessex House, 1 Chesham Street, London, SW1X 8ND. Entry is free but by advance tickets only. Contact Mary Painter by telephone on + 44 (0) 1223 881328 or email to ocs.london@btinternet.com for registration.

Thursday 10th April at the Society of Antiquaries (note change of date from the previous programme)
5.45 p.m. for 6.15 p.m. with welcome drinks sponsored by Woolley & Wallis

Dr. Nigel Wood, Emeritus Professor of Ceramics at the University of Westminster

A Study of Mamluk Period Imitations of Chinese Longquan Celadon Wares Excavated from al-Fustat, Egypt

Chinese celadon wares from the Longquan kilns in Zhejiang province were exported in huge quantities in the 13th to 15th centuries AD. Among the numerous countries importing Longquan wares at this time were Vietnam, Burma and Thailand. Potters in all these regions made local versions of the Chinese originals using high-firing stoneware bodies and reduction-fired glazes. Near Eastern countries also imported Longquan wares over this same period, largely channelled through the port of Hormuz. Near Eastern potters, however, had no experience in high-temperature ceramics, so copied these imports with earthenware clays and earthenware glazes. Despite these limitations, some Near Eastern versions of Chinese Longquan celadons can be superficially indistinguishable from the Chinese wares, although they are compositionally unrelated. The range, quality and scale of these Near Eastern celadon imitations are certainly impressive and, in the case of Persia, the ‘imitated celadon’ style continued well into the 17th C.

Quantities of these local celadon imitations have been found in shard-heaps at al-Fustat in Egypt, and some twenty examples are held at the Research Laboratory for Archaeology and the History of Art at Oxford University. Some are wasters, so must be of Egyptian manufacture, but others may derive from kilns in Syria or Persia. With the help of fully-quantitative SEM analysis and imaging, the technologies used to copy these Chinese wares have been established and re-created, and this talk describes the discoveries made through this work. Considered overall, the shards represent a subtle, sophisticated and successful manipulation of earthenware technology to re-create the colour and character of imported Far Eastern high-fired ceramics.

Dr. Nigel Wood is an Emeritus Professor of Ceramics at the University of Westminster and an Honorary Research Associate at Oxford University. Nigel trained originally as a potter and worked full-time making stoneware, porcelain and terracotta for some ten years (1974-84) at a workshop in Hampshire. His interests in Asian ceramics date back to his art school years and he published his first paper in 1973 and his first book in 1978. Since 1973, Nigel has published some 100 papers on East Asian, European and Middle Eastern ceramics, mainly considered from the technological perspective. In 2004 he was co-author with Rose Kerr of the Ceramic Technology volume of Science and Civilisation in China, Joseph Needham (Vol. V, part 12, CUP). Over the last two years Nigel has collaborated with Peking University and the Palace Museum, Beijing on the technological study of Ding ware, Ru ware and Guan ware. He has also worked recently at Oxford on Egyptian copies of Longquan celadon ware, and the relationships between Chinese ceramics and the Korean Goryeo celadon tradition of the early 12th C.


Friday 9th May at the Society of Antiquaries (note change of date from previous programme)
6.00 p.m. (lecture until 7:15 p.m.) followed by a drinks reception sponsored by Marion and Sam Marsh

May Huang and Dr. Assadullah Souren Melikian-Chirvani

Important New Discoveries of Early Yuan Blue-and-White from Jingdezhen

May Huang will present recent discoveries of porcelain fragments at Jingdezhen which should change the chronology of Yuan Blue-and-White. These will include the only dated piece of Yuan blue-and-white besides the ‘David Vases’, as well as a group of very important underglaze-blue and -red decorated shards excavated at Hongwei Yingyuan (Hongwei Cinema) in downtown Jingdezhen. Through analysis of the archaeological strata and other research, these fragments may be attributed to the period between 1323 and 1336, i.e. much earlier than the so-called “David Vases Type” first advanced by American scholars such as John Pope in the 1950s. In total fragments of fifteen stem bowls have been discovered, all of which are decorated in underglaze blue and copper red. A scientific compositional test indicates that both the cobalt-blue and copper-red pigments were imported from West Asia. Moreover, seven stem bowls are decorated with Iranian verses along the rim. After analysing the inscriptions, the shape, decoration, and painting technique, one may conclude that these wares were made by Iranian potters who came to Jingdezhen with imported cobalt.

Dr. Melikian-Chirvani will analyse and discuss the Iranian inscriptions on these stem bowls.

May Huang (Huang Wei), born in 1982, works as lecturer at the School of Ceramic Art, Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute, where she teaches courses on the history of Chinese ceramics as well as world ceramics. She holds an M.A. degree from Peking University and has published articles in Wenwu and elsewhere. She has extensive field experience with archaeological excavations, and in 2008 and 2013 received the Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute’s award of Exemplary Teacher. She has repeatedly been invited to lecture to the OCS, London, the Hong Kong OCS, and the Min Chiu Society, Hong Kong.

Dr. Assadullah Souren Melikian-Chirvani is a historian of Iran and Iranian art. He is Research Director of the Département des sciences de l’homme et de société of the CNRS in France and has published widely on Iranian art, in particular on metalwork. Among his many publications are the catalogue raisonné of the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum, entitled Islamic Metalwork from the Iranian World (1982); and the catalogue of a major Safavid exhibition at the Louvre, Paris, Le chant du monde : l'art de l'Iran safavide, 1501-1736 (2007).

May Huang

Literati Taste of Supervisor Tang Ying:
A Study Based on Newly Discovered Ceramics He Commissioned

As an excellent supervisor of the imperial kilns, Tang Ying(1682-1756) has achieved brilliant results during the Yongzheng and Qianlong periods. At the same time he took advantage of his access to the manufactories to make a number of porcelains for himself and his friends. These wares, which were commissioned by Tang Ying and not by the Emperor, genuinely embody his literary taste and personality. This lecture will present several categories of such porcelains including some newly discovered pieces auctioned recently, and by analyzing their style and design philosophy and looking at documentary records identify the characteristics of this type of porcelain and offer a new view on Supervisor Tang Ying.

For a biographical note on May Huang, see above.

Admission is free but places are limited and booking essential.

GEMS OF CHINESE PAINTING - A voyage along the Yangzi River
3 Apr 2014 – 31 Aug 2014
This exhibition explores the culture and beauty of southeast China through 40 paintings and ceramics from the British Museum collections. China’s southeast, also called Jiangnan, stretches from the Lu Mountains eastwards along the Yangzi River to Shanghai, including historic cities such as Yangzhou, Ningbo, Hangzhou, Suzhou and Nanjing. Since the 3rd century, when Nanjing was made the capital of successive dynasties, Jiangnan gradually became China’s agriculturally most productive and culturally and intellectually advanced region.
This exhibition celebrates the re-display of the Museum’s best known Chinese painting, the Admonitions of the Instructress to the Court Ladies, in a new gallery space. The Admonitions scroll, traditionally attributed to Gu Kaizhi, is considered to be a close copy of the probably perished original from Nanjing. Free admission.

MING: 50 years that changed China
18 September 2014 – 5 January 2015
This major exhibition will explore a golden age in China’s history. Between AD 1400 and 1450, China was a global superpower run by one family – the Ming dynasty – who established Beijing as the capital and built the Forbidden City. During this period, Ming China was thoroughly connected with the outside world. Chinese artists absorbed many fascinating influences, and created some of the most beautiful objects and paintings ever made.

The exhibition will feature a range of these spectacular objects – including exquisite porcelain, gold, jewellery, furniture, paintings, sculptures and textiles – from museums across China and the rest of the world. Many of them have only been very recently discovered and have never been seen outside China.
