Craig Clunas: Marketing Art in China from Ming to Modernity

China is the site of what is the longest continuous art market tradition in the world, but that does not mean it is unchanged over time. This talk will focus on two particular moments of intense market activity in China, the early seventeenth century and the early twentieth century, to examine the continuities and differences between these two era. The diary of a late Ming 'man of culture', rich in the detail of an elite collector's lifestyle, will be juxtaposed with the mass culture of newspaper advertisements placed by artists in Republican Shanghai; these texts, and the artworks they describes, will act as a focus for an investigation of the art market in China from Ming to modernity.
