This introduction to Chinese blue and white porcelain traces its development from the Yuan through the Ming and Ch'ing dynasties to the present day.
Nineteen varieties of wares are discussed, including related porcelains from Japan and Korea, and each ware is illustrated by characteristic examples; several of these illustrations have not previously been published. This very collectible Chinese porcelain has long been university popular. Chinese Blue and White examines the successive reign periods in detail and describes the methods of manufacture; it also provides sufficient historical background for the reader to understand more fully just how important a place porcelain has held in the culture of China. Ann Frank, a young scholar and connoisseur of Oriental porcelain, has provided an authoritative handbook for anyone who is interested in this particular aspect of the rich and remarkable decorative arts of China.
