This issue delves into the rich tapestry of Asian and Islamic art collections across Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and Finland. In collaboration with guest editor Minna Törmä, we uncover how East Asian arts were acquired and influenced these regions, highlighting collections curated by royalty, aristocracy, expatriates, travellers, private individuals, museum professionals, and academics. Törmä’s introduction sets the stage for a wide-ranging exploration of the diversity and lesser-known facets of these Nordic collections, spanning from the 18th century to the present day.

Two articles enrich our understanding of the Yuanmingyuan: the first examines an exhibition at the Hong Kong Palace Museum, revealing the garden’s multifaceted role in in the cultural and ritual events of the Qing dynasty; the second investigates the provenance of looted objects from the Yuanmingyuan.

Subjects: Art And Design, Art, Culture, Travel
