“Pillage is formally prohibited…”1 Provenance Research on East Asian Art #3 - Workshop

Berlin, Germany
8-9 November, 2019
Call for Papers
Deadline for submissions: 15 June 2019

The collecting of art and artefacts from East Asia has been in vogue in the Western world for hundreds of years with the forced opening of China, Japan and Korea from
the mid-19th century onwards, creating a market boom that resulted in thousands of objects entering collections worldwide. China in particular, during the first three decades of the 20th century, became subject to the most intensive spate of collecting on the part of museum institutions and private collectors.
