If you have any interest in color or Chinese
Porcelain, I highly recommend the Chinese
American Experience and Beyond lecture series
on the topic of "Qing Dynasty Ceramics: An unprecedented era of
colorful glaze innovations", by Allie Arnell, with comments and
works from his own collection by Andy Lu.
In the Qing Dynasty, the vogue for porcelain in Europe would reach its height during the first half of the 18th century. This presentation showed the gorgeous colors such as café au lait, pale yellow, brilliant turquoise, apple green, purple or eggplant, etc. There were over 40 colors in the porcelain during the Qing Dynasty.
This program is presented to you by the SDSU Chinese Cultural Center and San Diego Chinese Historical Museum.
Here is just a short selection of the fabulous works that were discussed. The Song Period preceded the Qing Period with each previous period influencing the next but adding something new.
