Exported Porcelains From the Ming and Qing Dynasties

This exhibition includes a wide range of porcelains that were made exclusively for export to Europe and later to North America between the 16th and 20th century. Whether wares made for non-Western markets are covered by the term depends on their context.

The Chinese porcelain industry at Jingdezhen, Jiangxi Province, was reorganized and the export trade flourished during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). Exports included signature blue and white porcelains. Wares included garnitures of vases, dishes, tea wares, ewers, and other useful wares along with figurines, animals and birds. Blanc de Chine porcelains and Yixing stone wares arriving in Europe influenced many European potters.

Dates: Jan. 31-April 30

Bronze Weapons of Ancient Yue

The Hundred Yue or ancient Yue was an ancient conglomeration of indigenous hill tribes who inhabited what is now South China and northern Vietnam between the first millennium B.C. and the first millennium A.D. This exhibition features more than 400 bronze weapon relics from the area.

In the Warring States period (5th century-221 B.C.), “Yue” referred to the State of Yue in Zhejiang. The later kingdoms of Minyue in Fujian and Nanyue in Guangdong were both considered Yue states. Although the Yue had an inchoate knowledge of agriculture and shipbuilding, Han Dynasty (206 B.C.–220 A.D.) Chinese writers regarded the Yue as uncivilized and backward barbarians who had tattoos, lived in primitive conditions, and lacked basic technology. The Yue aborigines were gradually displaced and assimilated into Chinese culture as the Han empire expanded.
