Qing Empire Porcelain: Lecture by Peter Lam *October 16th*

5 Oct

Check out the latest from the always lovely Seattle Asian Art Museum this coming Thursday, October 16th at 7pm. Peter Y.K. Lam, art historian and author of “2000 Years of Chinese Lacquer” and “Elegance and Radiance: Grandeur in Qing Glass” leads the lecture concerning Qing studio-marks.

From the Seattle Asian Art Museum website:

Emperors of China’s Qing dynasty (1644–1911), bored with the formal setup of the Forbidden City, preferred to spend part of the year in royal gardens in the suburbs and vicinity of the capital city, Beijing. Inside these gardens were halls, studios, pavilions, chambers and studies with names coined by the emperors. Very often art objects—porcelain items in particular—were inscribed with studio marks belonging to these gardens. Art historian and museum professional Peter Y. K. Lam introduces some of the studio-mark porcelainware commissioned by the Qing emperors.

Adults: $8
