“China”= Porcelain: The Importance of Chinese Ceramics on Global Traditions

 

Denise Patry Leidy

Curator of Chinese Sculpture and Decorative Arts

The Metropolitan Museum of Art

 

Sunday, May 12; 2 p.m.

Chinese ceramics tell many stories. Some are technological; others are cultural and illustrate historic trends, such as the rise of maritime trade. This lecture explores the impact of Chinese ceramics on global history from the eighth through the eighteenth century, focusing largely on works in the DIA’s collection.
