British-man S. W. Bushell concentrated himself a lot in collecting, researching and writing about ancient Chinese porcelains in the late nineteenth century. And his efforts helped the western world to understanding the culture of Chinese ceramic art at that time. Bushell’s research could be considered as the basis of a new light and the knowledge system in this academic field. In this paper, the author will analyze the cultural diffusion and development of Chinese ceramic in the west in late Qing dynasty, and the re-building of art historiography system about the ceramic, by reviewing Bushell’s journeys in China and publications in Britain. The result will be helpful in researching of Chinese porcelain art and its communicating.
