Anthony M. Lee

Anthony Lee's background includes studies in classical Chinese, Chinese history and historiography. He carved seals as a sideline business for artists in Japan, for both calligraphy and painting and for ceramic artists. For this he studied bronze and early seal inscriptions from the catalogues of major Chinese collections.

Mr. Lee's general art expertise comes from working in galleries as a teenager, through University studies and working with the Royal Ontario Museum, and a decade in Asia meeting and communicating with dealers as a collector and independent scholar. As well, he is a licensed instructor of Japanese tea ceremony and has just published a book, The Japanese Tea Ceremony Gift Set : Explore the Mysteries and Traditions of the Ancient Japanese Tea Ceremony, through Bridgewater Books, The Ivy Press, UK.
