41.1939Over 2,000 years of ceramic excellence are showcased with meaningful selections to feature a range of different techniques through both figural and practical forms. Dating from seven different dynastic periods—stretching from the second century BC to contemporary works—this installation provides a profound rationale for why the name of the country became a synonym for the ceramic arts while demonstrating an abridged introduction of some of the most significant and celebrated ceramic types in Chinese history.
