This exhibition brings together two hundred outstanding works for the first time in Europe. The jewels of the collection of the Swiss businessman Alfred Baur, imperial porcelain wares that he acquired between 1928 and 1951, are matched by the marvellous collection from the Zhuyuetang formed in Hong Kong from the end of the 1980s by Richard Kan, an art lover as fervent as he is erudite, who very early on became fascinated by the art of monochrome ceramics.
Employing a three-part, chronological presentation that displays the works in their historical, artistic and technical context, the exhibition focuses on the sophistication and ritual and profane functions of imperial monochrome porcelain during the Ming (1368–1644) and Qing (1644–1911) dynasties as a continuation of the tradition of the Tang (618–907) and Song (960–1279).
