2013 began with four outstanding lectures: Dr. Timon Screech made the
400-year history of the English East India Company a riveting story and
made the audience forget the technical hitch we faced; Cinta Krahe gave
a most thoroughly researched paper on the virtually unknown history of
Spain’s connection with Chinese porcelain; Keith Wilson in the Woolf
Jade Lecture amazed specialists and amateurs alike with his sharp
observations on recycled archaic jades; and Li Guangning acted as a
most persuasive ambassador of his home province, Anhui, and its
archaeological treasures. A handling session on blue-and-white was
again over-subscribed, with a fascinating selection of items from many
countries available for handling, starting with the Yuan dynasty and
ending in the present. The summer programme promises to be no less

Dr. Moya Carey
Tilework Drawings from Iran: Accessing Safavid Architecture from South Kensington
Throughout the late nineteenth century, the South Kensington Museum
(now the V&A) endeavoured to collect important examples of art and
design, either historic or foreign in origin. This worldwide mission
extended to Qajar Iran, and addressed material culture of almost all
media, from carpets to ceramics. But not all art media were equally
available or amenable to such acquisitive and sometimes even
unscrupulous projects: the vivid tilework of Safavid Isfahan’s
monumental sacred architecture elicited deep admiration, but was not
for sale. European travellers were not officially admitted to the
Safavid mosques and madrasas in the nineteenth century, and these
sacred buildings were carefully guarded by their clerical custodians.
But in 1877, Robert Murdoch Smith, the museum’s agent in Iran, was not
daunted; he commissioned local Isfahan craftsmen to mount scaffolding
and make scale colour replicas of the interior and exterior tiled
surfaces of several of these great buildings: 37 painted oil-cloth
panels traced directly from the walls, vaults, windows and even the
massive domes of six different buildings. This way at least, the South
Kensington Museum would possess a record of these historic surface
designs, if not the cut-tile mosaics themselves.
Dr Moya Carey is the Iran Heritage Foundation Curator for the Iranian
Collections at the Asian Department of the V&A. She earned her
doctorate at SOAS in 2001, researching constellation mapping in
thirteenth-century manuscripts and on celestial globes. She has worked
for several private and public collections of Islamic art, and also
taught at university level. In June 2012, she co-edited issue 6
of the online Journal of Art Historiography, which focused on Islamic
art history. Moya’s current research addresses European interests in
Middle Eastern art and design during the nineteenth century, including
the Isfahan tilework drawing series. She is preparing a catalogue
of the V&A’s collection of carpets produced in Qajar Iran.

Japanese Porcelain Not for Sale: Nabeshima Ware and Other Presentation Ceramics
As the four hundred year anniversary of the formation of the porcelain
industry in Japan is fast approaching, it is timely to reassess the
role and meaning of Japanese porcelain both domestically and
abroad. Porcelain production began in the Arita area of Saga
domain (Hizen) in the 1610s and is still currently thriving. This
lecture will focus on a specific aspect of porcelain production in
Japan, namely the early porcelain production and the development of
presentation wares (kenjôhin, 献上品) for the Tokugawa Shogunate during
the Edo period (1615-1868) and its use as gifts for other lords.
Particular attention will be placed on the meaning of presentation
goods, as it concerns their role in the complex relationship between
the Nabeshima domain, the Tokugawa shogunate and the other lords in the
There were two main different kinds of presentation goods made in
Tokugawa Japan, annual and periodic. Six types of ceramic wares from
different domains were used at varying periods as annual presentation
goods during the Edo period. The focus of this lecture is on the
annual presentation wares made by the Nabeshima domain, first at their
kilns in the Arita area and then in Okawachi, Imari City. Recent
research and excavations in Japan have uncovered important clues that
point towards a new assessment of the visually compelling Nabeshima
ware that was never formally for sale during the Edo period.
Production of Nabeshima ware lasted for two hundred years starting in
the1650s, but the peak period of production was from the 1690s to the
1720s. New research helps to place which types of Nabeshima wares were
used as gifts for the Shogunate and which were destined for other lords
or internal use. Intriguingly, the most lavish wares were
certainly in the 18th century not for Shogunal use.
Nicole Coolidge Rousmaniere is the founding Director of the Sainsbury
Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures. She received her
PhD from Harvard University in 1998. Her research interests include
early modern to contemporary ceramics in East Asia and particularly
Japan, East Asian trade networks, the history of archaeology and
collecting things Japanese. She spent three years on secondment as a
Visiting Professor in Cultural Resource Studies at Tokyo University
(2006-2009). Since the summer of 2011 she has been Research Director of
the Sainsbury Institute and curator at the British Museum in the
Department of Asia, where she is completing a book manuscript for the
British Museum Press entitled Four Hundred Years of Japanese Porcelain
to be published in 2014.
A drinks reception will follow Nicole’s lecture, sponsored by
Sotheby’s, to which all members are warmly invited. So we have an
idea of numbers for catering purposes, please complete the booking form

Introducing Asian Ceramics: Celadon
This second lecture in our introductory lecture series presenting
different types of Asian ceramics will look at the great variety of
greenish-glazed stonewares that became popular in the West under the
term Celadon. Regina Krahl will focus on the historical development of
green-glazed stonewares from the Shang dynasty (16th century to c. 1050
BC) onwards; Nigel Wood will look at technical differences between the
various wares from the major kilns. A few celadon sherds will be
provided for handling.

The Imperial Luohans of Zhongdu
The British Museum’s great lead-glazed luohan belongs to a set
discovered in Hebei a century ago, the origin of which has been much
discussed during the past thirty years. Majority opinion has it
that the figures are Liao (907-1125), an opinion shared until fairly
recently by the author. The present paper will argue however that
the luohan set was commissioned during the second half of the 12th
century for an imperially-established Chan (Zen) Buddhist temple at the
Jin (1115-1234) capital Zhongdu (present-day Beijing).
Derek Gillman is Executive Director and President of the Barnes
Foundation. He has served as President and Director of the Pennsylvania
Academy of the Fine Arts, Deputy Director of the National Gallery of
Victoria, Australia, and Keeper of the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts
at the University of East Anglia, from which he holds a Master of Laws
degree by research. Prior to that, he was a research assistant in the
Department of Oriental Antiquities at the British Museum. Gillman
began his career at Christie’s London, after a year at the Beijing
Languages Institute in 1975-6. He was an undergraduate at
Magdalen College, Oxford, where he read Chinese Studies.
He is President of the International Cultural Property Society, and a
member of the Association of Art Museum Directors. The revised edition
of his book The Idea of Cultural Heritage was published by Cambridge
University Press in 2010.
Wednesday 6th November at 6.00 p.m.
The First Sonia Lightfoot Paintings Lecture
This lecture will be followed by a drinks reception sponsored by Bonhams.
Since this lecture takes place during Asian Art in London, booking for this lecture is essential.
Please contact Mary Painter or complete the booking form at the end of this programme.
Dr. Howard Rogers, President, Kaikodo LLC
New Clothes for the Emperor: Painting and Exoticism under Hui-tsung (r.1101-26)
The lecture will investigate the sources, both familiar and exotic, of
the painting styles initiated by and under the emperor Hui-tsung
[Huizong] and practiced at his court. Particular attention will be paid
to relationships with styles practiced in Korea and Japan, suggesting
that the direction of influence was contrary to that normally believed
to have obtained at that time.
Howard Rogers earned an AB, MA, ABD and Student Emeritus degree
studying under James Cahill at the University of California at
Berkeley. He then moved to Japan, having been invited to write a book
on 18th century painting in Yangzhou for a Japanese publisher, while
finishing his dissertation on the same subject. He then taught
Chinese and Western art-history at Sophia University in Tokyo.
Howard and his wife began collecting Chinese paintings and ceramics,
enjoying the mentorship of Ch'eng Ch'i, Jean-Pierre Dubosc, and Walter
Hochstadter as well as most of the major dealers in Tokyo. They
eventually founded a company, Kaikodo, and, after seventeen years of
teaching, Howard left Sophia and became a full-time dealer in 1983.
In 1981 Howard worked on the catalogue of Eight Dynasties of Chinese
Painting. In 1988 he organized and wrote the catalogue for Masterworks
of Ming and Qing Painting from the Forbidden City, the first exhibition
of later Chinese paintings from the Palace Museum in Beijing ever to
tour the outside world. In 1991 he and his wife worked with
Sherman Lee on the Asian section of Circa 1492: Art in the Age of
Exploration, an exhibition organized by Jay Levenson for the National
Gallery of Art in Washington. In 1998 Howard was appointed general
editor of the catalogue for the exhibition China 5,000 Years at the
Guggenheim Museum in New York, serving also as adjunct curator.
DISCUSSION AND HANDLING SESSIONS
The OCS offers regular meetings at which members of the Society bring
along items which they have collected for discussion. Each of
these meetings is devoted to a particular topic and, although the
Society has an especial interest in ceramics, other subjects are also
included. Members are asked to limit the items they are showing
to no more than five pieces.
Our recent sessions have proved extremely popular and, due to
overcrowding at the Blue and White handling session at the Society of
Antiquaries in February, we have had to limit future sessions to 20
members only. Only members who have booked a place will be able
to sit at the table and handle the pieces.
The next handling session on guan and other crackled wares, which will
take place on Tuesday 14th May, is already fully booked with a waiting
On Tuesday 22nd October there will be a discussion and handling session
at the V&A on Celadon wares from the V&A collection. This
will take place in the Ceramics Study Room of the V & A and will be
limited to two sessions of 15 members each, one from 2:15 – 3:10 and
the second from 3:15 – 4:10 p.m. Booking is essential –

The Art of Influence: Asian Propaganda, from 30th May – 1st September, 2013 in room 91
This exhibition features material from all over Asia, but primarily
China, India, Japan, Korea and Vietnam. Covering 1900 to 1976 - a
period of continual war, revolution and ideological extremes - it
challenges the common Western notion of propaganda simply as
manipulation by governments and corporations. It takes the
broader position that propaganda is an essential part of
nation-building, political culture and participation. Including many
objects from the collections which have never been displayed or
published, The Art of Influence: Asian Propaganda sheds new light on
the arts of persuasion.
