    The characteristic red seals on East Asian artwork are the fingerprints of artists, studios, collectors, and critics. Along with inscriptions and other marks, these seals provide clues to the authenticity, provenance, circulation, and reception of a given piece. This talk will follow these traces in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean objects on display, exploring their meaning and how art historians use and interpret this information.

    Gallery talks are informal and include discussion. Limited to 25 participants; please arrive early.
