Vient de Paraître : ORIENTATIONS MAGAZINE JUIN 2006

Au sommaire de ce numéro :

The majority of this month's articles focus on lesser-known aspects of Ming

and Qing material culture. The items of furniture discussed by Curtis Evarts

and Désiré Feuerle demonstrate their differing functions and aesthetics in

the literati and imperial realms. Yang Xiaoneng presents the first in a

series of five articles on Ming archaeology by introducing finds from royal

and elite burials. Through historical and scientific analysis, Du Feng and

Su Baoru have redated the establishment of a Ming imperial kiln and many of

the so-called Hongwu imperial porcelains to the Yongle reign.

Donald LaRocca presents an intriguing exhibit from the groundbreaking show

on Tibetan arms and armour at the Met which has decorative elements seen in

Ming and Qing swords.

Arnold Chang's feature on how a fine collection of modern ink paintings was

built up from the 1980s offers a contrast to the fevered buying of

contemporary Chinese art described in our reports on the New York and Hong

Kong auctions.

In the commentary, Neil MacGregor explains why the signing of a Memorandum

of Understanding with the National Museum of China brings the British Museum

a step closer to its goal of becoming a museum for the world.
