Titled after Light from the Far East by Reikichi Kita, this presentation will explore the Nichols family’s belongings from Asia which reflect the early 20th century’s exported trends and Rose Nichols’ personal tastes. 


This summer’s Julie Linsdell and Georgia Linsdell Enders Research Fellow Rosa Jang will present on how Asian export-wares were described and appreciated during Rose’s lifetime–from her treasured woodblock prints to the painted portraits of Qing dynasty “ladies of the court.” She will present several of her findings uncovered from the archives such as the Nichols family’s connection to Asian art and cultures through R. Kita, a Japanese author and long-time friend of Rose. She will also share how her research improves understanding of the collection’s Asian belongings including new provenance details. 


Rosa Jang is currently an art history MA student focusing on East Asian art at Boston University. Prior to Boston, she earned a BFA with majors in studio art and art history from Washington University in St. Louis. Her research interests are largely in Korean and Japanese art of the 20th century. She intends to further study the artistic, cultural encounters between Korea and Japan and the development of self/national identities during and after Japan’s imperial occupation of Korea. 

 


This program is presented in tandem with another that highlights forgotten AAPI stories in New England.
