OCS Lecture by Dr. Craig Barclay

9 avril 2019 ; 16 h 30 - 18 h 30 UTC+1

 

In Pursuit of Beauty: Malcolm MacDonald and the Collections of the Oriental Museum.

Dr. Craig Barclay, Head of Museums at Durham University

Tuesday 9th April, 5:45 pm OCS London

Durham University’s Oriental Museum is home to world class collections of Asian art and archaeology. This talk will focus upon the museum’s Chinese ceramics and, in particular, on the life and collection of one of the museum’s greatest benefactors, the Rt Hon Malcolm MacDonald. A career diplomat and incorrigible collector, MacDonald used his love and knowledge of art and ceramics as a tool to foster his personal relationships with key politicians from around the globe. He particularly loved Chinese ceramics and donated important material to museums in Malaysia and Singapore as well as Durham.
