The Williams Collection of Far Eastern Ceramics: Tonnancour SectionKamer Aga-Oglu 1975
To mark the completion of their digitization, UMMAA titles are temporarily free-to-read until the end of September 2021.
Kamer Aga-Oglu was curator of the Museum's Asian collections from 1945 to 1974. An extraordinary scholar, Aga-Oglu singlehandedly transformed the study of Asian ceramics, focusing particularly on understudied Asian trade wares in the Museum's collections. A specialist in Far Eastern art history, she devoted her life's work to researching the division's outstanding collection of Asian ceramics. Throughout her entire tenure at the Museum, Kamer Aga-Oglu was the Museum's only woman curator. Her catalogs of the Williams Collection contain dozens of photographs and detailed descriptions of the pieces.
