(Vol.45 – Number 1)

This issue, dedicated to the Museo Nazionale d’Arte Orientale ‘Giuseppe Tucci’ (MNAO), opens with an interview with director Francesco di Gennaro, followed by MNAO’s Massimiliano Polichetti and Oscar Nalesini who look at aspects of the Tibetan and Nepalese collections. In anticipation of the museum’s groundbreaking exhibition and catalogue of its renowned thangka collection, Deborah Klimburg-Salter reflects on the culmination of a research and conservation project that has been a quarter of a century in the making. Former museum director Donatella Mazzeo then discusses an important donation to the museum in 2005, and Paola D’Amore takes readers on a tour through the galleries. Also in this issue is Maxwell K. Hearn’s guide to a major exhibition of contemporary ink art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. In other features, Josh Yiu pays tribute to Michael Sullivan, and Puay-peng Ho offers a brief history of Hong Kong’s iconic Hollywood Road.
