More Details..

Virtually every museum in the world owns some spoil of war; souvenir from a conquered colonial nation; loot from an ancient archaeological site; or a painting, manuscript, religious icon, gun, or jewel stolen, smuggled, and sold by an unscrupulous dealer. Many artifacts with murky pasts, also called “problematic provenance,� came to their museum homes when ownership rules were more lenient and source countries less demanding. There they remain today. But a handful of questionable objects have found their way back to their proper owners. These are the focus of Stolen, Smuggled, Sold. The book is structured as a series of detective stories with author Nancy Moses as the detective. The reader follows along as she uncovers memorable objects, describes their origins, and follows their often-convoluted trail from their sources to a museum and back again. Along the way, she will encounter and seek interviews with the fascinating and sometimes shady cast of characters involved with cultural property: unscrupulous g

More Details..

The Admonitions scroll is an internationally recognized masterpiece of narrative painting and is arguably the earliest surviving Chinese painting. Painted in ink and colour on silk and traditionally attributed to the founding figure of Chinese painting, Gu Kaizhi (c.345c.406), the scroll entered the British Museum in 1903 and has become one of its most famous objects. The scroll illustrates a poem written in AD 292 by the poet-official Zhang Hua (232300), who was reprimanding Empress Jia (257300) who had wantonly abandoned the Confucian-based ethical behaviour expected of court ladies, including personal sacrifice to save the emperor should he be in danger. The Admonitions scroll was painted centuries later in order to admonish a different wayward ruler this time an emperor himself. While didactic and morally instructive, the painted scenes also reveal deep psychological insights into some of the figures as well as offer touching glimpses of court life, including in the bedchamber and a grooming session with the children. Modern scholarship holds that the Admonitions scroll dates from the sixth to eighth century AD. While it may or may not be a copy of an original work by Gu, without doubt it accurately represents a style current in his lifetime and as such represents the seminal development of the features that came to distinguish Chinese ink painting as a distinctive world tradition. The Admonitions scroll has been held in many prestigious Chinese private and imperial collections, as well as having been copied by other Chinese artists, before arriving in London over a century ago. The story of the scroll is of fascinating historical interest and this accessible and beautifully illustrated book really gets to the heart of it.
