Few would know that out of the four core collections of the Hong Kong Museum of Art China trade art is the earliest cornerstone. Its formation was based on a legendary bequest with a fascinating lost-and-found story. Equally unknown are the mysteries solved by recent research conducted by the museum on this collection, which ranks among the best of its kind in the world. It comprises paintings produced in and from Guangzhou and Hong Kong in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, against the backdrop of China trade. In this talk, Dr. Mok will share a few of these findings and will speak about how the Museum redefines China trade paintings—a genre with a distinct East meets West story particularly dear to Hong Kong and its beginnings.
Dr. Maria Mok joined the Hong Kong Museum of Art in 1996. She has extensive experience in various departments, including China Trade Paintings, Chinese Antiquities, Modern Art and Education. She is currently responsible for research, curating, publication, and acquisition of the museum’s China trade and Chinese Antiquities collections. With a research focus on the dating and authentication of China trade paintings, she has published extensively and co-authored with Paul A. Van Dyke Images of the Canton Factories 1760-1822: Reading History in Art (HKU Press: 2015).
