The RA Collection of Chinese Ceramics:
A Collector’s Vision

Cerâmica da China. Colecção RA

by Maria Antónia Pinto de Matos

The RA Collection of Chinese Ceramics: A Collector’s Vision is the most important new reference book on Chinese export porcelain to be published for many years. It provides the first comprehensive study of what is probably the world’s best private collection of pieces for the European market and contains new research into the subject of Chinese export porcelain.

The author Maria Antónia Pinto de Matos has been researching the RA Collection for 11 years and the result is a work of true scholarship providing the most up to date and complete account of the subject available. The three-volume set of hardcover books includes chapters on earthenware, stoneware and porcelain of the Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties, works with Western shapes and decoration and armorial Chinese export porcelain. It gives details of many rare or unique pieces in the RA Collection, which are the only ones of their type yet recorded. Published in a limited edition of 900 numbered copies – 500 in English and 400 in Portuguese – signed by the author, this work is a must for museum curators, collectors and scholars.
