Chinese Blue-and-White Porcelains of the Yuan (1279-1368) and Ming (1368-1644) Dynasties

Robert Mowry, curator of Chinese art at the Arthur M. Sackler Museum, Harvard University, will show how early Ming patronage of porcelain production elevated blue-and-white wares to the luxury status that made them globally desirable. In addition, he will explore similarities between Yuan and Ming porcelains, lacquers, metalwork, and woodblockprinted books.
