The fine, white-glazed porcelain figures and vessels produced in Dehua, Fujian province, have long been admired in the West under the name blanc de Chine. Featuring a wide selection of examples from American collections, this exhibition catalog explores the history and the unique economic and cultural circumstances of this remarkable ware both in China, where it was produced and used domestically, and in Europe where it was exported. It also offers a fresh look at attributions to master potters from the Ming dynasty into the twentieth century.
