Gugong Museum: GUGONG BOWUYUAN CANG YIXING ZISHA. Yixing Zisha Wares in the Palace Museum. Beijing, 2007. 300 pp. Fullpage colour plates throughout. 28x22 cm. Wrappers.
Catalogue of a delightful and very sophisticated exhibition at the Gugong Museum in Beijing showing 200 superb Yixing objects, many from the Qing court collection. Comprises 10 objects from the Ming, 180 from the Qing and 10 contemporary Yixing items by modern masters donated to the Gugong. The majority of exhibits are, of course, yixing teapots, a number of which are glazed (the seldom-seen Yijun ware) and many bear inscriptions and designs. The exhibition also included other Yixing objects such as tea canisters, brushpots, inkslabs, cups and water containers. Most of the objects have never previously been exhibited. Preface, introduction, list of contents and captions in English. Fuller text in Chinese. Recommended. Now out-of-print and hard to find.
