About artist/note:

The Montelius family had a long family tradition of pursuing a career in law, however two sons, Wilhelm and Oscar, decided otherwise. Wilhelm became the Director of the Swedish telephone company Ericsson from 1901-1916, and Oscar (1843-1921) became an archaeologist and member of the Swedish National Heritage Board. Wilhelm’s passion for collecting Asian ceramics and works of art was aided by Ericsson’s business in China at the time, and prior to the outbreak of World War One, he managed to acquire several important pieces.

瑞典知名電信供應商愛立信集團前總裁威廉·蒙特柳斯(1852-1918)從1901年起為瑞典電信公司愛立信董事會主席。該公司在中國有辦事處,在1914年第一次世界大戰爆發前,蒙特柳斯還要駐守在中國的工作人員隨身攜帶藝術品回國,由此可見蒙特柳斯對中國藝術的熱愛
