Anne is a lecturer at the Victoria and Albert Museum. She is a guide for private tours of the State Rooms and The Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace and lectures on British Painting to American students resident in London. In Autumn 2002, she catalogued the collection of Chinese porcelain at Kensington Palace and from then until 2005, she was a committee member of the French Porcelain Society.
Ms Haworth was a porcelain specialist at Christie’s before moving to Shanghai in 1995 for a seven-year residence during which time she lectured to the expatriate community in Shanghai and Beijing. She has lectured in many of London’s museums and art galleries and gave gallery talks during the Royal Academy’s ‘China: the Three Emperors, 1662-1795′ exhibition in 2005-6.
