Blue-and-white porcelain first came into being in the Tang Dynasty (618-907). Its manufacture technology started to mature in the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368). During the Ming and Qing Dynasties (1636-1911), the production of blue-and-white porcelain was perfected. As everyone knows, blue-and-white porcelain has been shipped and sold all around the world, synonymous with China and promoting the development of ceramic industries across the globe.
A total of about 160 blue-and-white porcelain works are on display in this exhibition, along with photos, videos, experimental data and multimedia devices, showcasing technical, cultural and commercial achievements of blue-and-white porcelain. You can also learn from this exhibition about Guangdong’s role in overseas trade and cultural exchange via the porcelain export industry.
