Catalogue of an exhibition at the Fondation Baur in Geneva showing fine Chinese monochrome ceramics from the Tang to the Qing dynasties and from two excellent holdings - the Baur itself and the Hong Kong Zhuyetang collection. Whilst the exhibition covered over 1000 years of Chinese ceramics, the highlight of the exhibition, and the majority of the exhibits, were superb Qing dynasty monochromes.
