Focusing on historical figures, this webinar reveals the often overlooked—but nevertheless profound—impact of women who shaped private and public collections, thereby influencing the field of Asian art history. Bringing together historians, museum curators, archivists, and provenance specialists, “Untold Stories: Women and the Asian Art Trade” features new research that illuminates the diversity within the interconnected networks that moved Asian art around the globe from the late nineteenth to the twentieth century. While women were part of these networks, their contributions have sustained little scholarly focus—until now.
