Chinese ceramics from Brazilian collector exhibited in MET

An international loan exhibition of 60 exquisite and unusual Chinese ceramics drawn from a Brazilian private collection is now on view at The Metropolitan Museum of Art through August 7.

This exhibition presents ceramics made in China during the period between the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries, when porcelain became a global luxury. By this time, Chinese porcelain had long been treasured elsewhere in Asia and in the Islamic World. Later, this longstanding inter-Asian trade began to impact the shapes and designs of some of the first porcelain objects traded to Europe.
