Recent Researches and Exhibitions on Ming Dynasty Porcelain Outside China

第一部分:大英博物館、大維德基金會的明瓷;海內外明代文物或瓷器展 圖1:蓮子碗,大英博物館藏品 明代瓷器在全世界一直享有崇高聲譽(圖1:蓮子碗,大英博物館藏品),相關英文專著及帶研究文章的展覽收藏圖錄等屢有出版。有關明瓷的英文研究,大體而言似乎分為兩大主流,一為對世界各地博物館館藏明瓷尤其是官窯瓷器的著錄與研究,涉及到斷代、與中國及世界各地公私收藏或出土類似明瓷的對比分析(圖2:蓮子碗,吳賚熙藏品),及有關的陶瓷史、宮廷藝術、美術史研究等(圖3:魚藻紋洗)。另外一條主線更側重貿易史的研究,例如從景德鎮、福建等窯各種明代瓷器在全球各地陸上、水下考古發現及傳世品研究,來探討中國與東亞、東南亞遠及歐美等地有關的貿易體系、網絡及全球貿易等問題。這種不同的研究重點僅是相對而言的,實際上鮮有學者會專注於一點而不及其餘。 圖2: 青花蓮子碗,吳賚熙藏品   圖3:鱼藻纹葵式洗 就筆者所知廣為參引的英文明瓷收藏圖錄,有大英博物館霍吉淑女士(Jessica Harrison-Hall)撰寫的該館館藏元代後期及明代瓷器圖錄《Catalogue of Late Yuan and Ming Ceramics in the British Museum (The British Museum Press, 2001) 》。霍吉淑女士為大英博物館中國部主任,從2016起兼任英國東方陶瓷學會會長。 此書已經絕版,甚難覓得,所幸近來由故宮出版社組織人員辛勞翻譯為中文,由大英博物館和故宮請筆者與故宮博物院器物部主任呂成龍研究員審核。在有限的時間內以極大功夫,按照輕重緩急修正初譯稿中大量翻譯問題後,於2014年出版,是很難得的學術資料,中文書名《大英博物館藏中國明代陶瓷》,趙偉、陳誼、文微譯;李寶平、呂成龍審校,上下冊(圖4)。 圖4上:《大英博物館藏中國明代陶瓷》 圖4下:《大英博物館藏中國明代陶瓷》   另外大維德中國藝術基金會(Percival David Foundation of Chinese Art)也藏有很多明瓷。大維德爵士藏品本在倫敦大學常年展出,後由何鴻卿爵士資助,在大英博物館95號展廳建成何鴻卿爵士陶瓷研究中心,於2009年全部轉到大英博物館該展廳展出,同年大英博物館出版社出版精品小集The British Museum Chinese Ceramics: Highlights of the Sir Percival David Collection,康蕊君(Regina Krahl)及霍吉淑合著,包括珍稀明代瓷器。康蕊君女士也曾任職大英博物館,為霍吉淑之前的東方陶瓷學會會長;曾為土耳其托普卡普博物館(Topkapi Saray Museum)撰寫館藏中國陶瓷圖錄。該書中譯者包括黃薇女士(與黃清華為景德鎮東郊學堂聯合創辦人伉儷)、倫敦“藝術亞洲”公司譚圓圓女士、北京正觀堂梁曉新先生等;經康蕊君和霍吉淑及大英博物館請筆者審核,2013年由“藝術亞洲”公司及北京的文物出版社聯合出版(圖5)。 圖5:《大英博物館大維德爵士藏中國陶瓷精選》 此外大英博物館於2014年底舉辦大型展覽“Ming: 50 Years That Changed
