employers to require union membership as a condition of employment. So far, twenty-four sta

Addendum 1A. Freer Medal Acceptance Address
On November 18, 2010, James Cahill was awarded the Charles Lang Freer Medal. This is the acceptance address he delivered then, outlining his long career, offering tributes to his predecessors, and suggesting how Freer's experiences in Japan in the summer of 1907 sharpened his connoisseurial eye for Chinese paintings
Addendum 1B. Riverbank: The Controversy
In December of 1999 a symposium titled "Issues of Authenticity" was held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art with papers mostly arguing for and against the age and authenticity of a painting titled Riverbank that the museum had recently acquired and believed to be an early masterwork, while others, spearheaded by Cahill, believe it to be a forgery by the late Zhang Daqian. Revelations about the background of this symposium, and additional opinions by others about this controversy, are offered here
Addendum 2A. Notes on Judging Authenticity and Dating
A general discussion of the fundamental problem of authenticity and dating in Chinese painting studies, using some examples from the lectures but also others that exemplify the methods and criteria by which good judgments can be made. My arguments of course emphasize the visual approach over the verbal--the reading of inscriptions and seals, etc.--important as those also are.
Addendum 2B. Riverbank: A Closer Look
Our lecturer returns, finally, after avoiding it throughout his series, to the controversial painting titled Riverbank, on which widely variant opinions are held by different authorities. He offers what he hopes is a convincing argument about why Riverbank cannot be old and must be a Zhang Daqian forgery. An insert near the end, added at the last moment, delivers what he believes to be decisive visual evidence to support his contention.
Arguing the Aftermath: Postlude to A Pure and Remote View
A long discussion of how we can understand the direction that Chinese painting took after the end of the Song dynasty, and why the great Song tradition of ink-monochrome landscape was not really continued in China. Some additional thoughts on the quality of representational truthfulness, "likeness" or "mimesis," which we are admonished by Orthodoxy advocates not to look for in Chinese painting, ends this lecture.
