Oct 12, 2013

Location: Shangri La

Presenter: Dr. Pedro Moura Carvalho, Scholar-in-Residence

This talk focuses on the jades produced at the Mughal court and how they were emulated by Chinese lapidaries during the Qing dynasty. The talk includes an examination of jades collected by Doris Duke (1912-93), as well as the role of the Delhi workshops and the so-called tourism trade to which they catered in the 19th century.
