One of the prestigious buyers at the show was William Sargent, Director of the Peabody Essex Museum ( 36).
When we met again later at the museum in Salem, he told me he was very happy with his purchases of three works of art on behalf of the museum. Will you continue to exhibit in London in the Fall?

William Sargent, Peabody Essex Museum
William Sargent will explain the origins and techniques of reverse paintings on glass. He will investigate the presence of Chinese eglomisé paintings in the colonial period and the exportation of iconic American images in the Federal period, and later. Mr. Sargent will provide the context for reverse paintings on glass by source images, national pride and the display of these paintings in American homes. Bill Sargent graduated from the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston with a bachelor's degree in fine arts. After serving in the United States Navy, he became a curator for the Huntington Art Museum in landlocked West Virginia. He also earned a master's degree in art history from Marshall University while working in West Virginia. Mr. Sargent spent the next 32 years in progressively more responsible curatorial positions for the China Trade Museum as it became integrated into the Peabody Essex Museum of Salem, Massachusetts. Mr. Sargent's publications include American Art: From the Limners to The Eight (1976); Contemporary Printmaking (1977); The Copeland Collection: Chinese and Japanese Ceramic Figures (1991); Views of the Pearl River Delta: Macao, Canton and Hong Kong (1996); and Treasures of Chinese Export Ceramics at the Peabody Essex Museum (2012). He also contributed "A Porcelain Menagerie: Chinese and Japanese Ceramics from the Copeland Collection" to The Magazine Antiques (January 1992). Bill Sargent spoke to the Forum about "Inspiration and Imitation: Chinese Influences on American Decorative Arts and Architecture" in 2002.

''Forbes, Perkins, Gardner -- you can pick almost any prominent name from Boston in the early 1800s, and it was somehow associated with the China trade,'' said William Sargent, curator, Asian export art, at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem.
