Catalogue of an excellent exhibition showing over 120 fine examples of late Ming imperial wares from the Museum's collection, together with loans from private collections in Hong Kong. All pieces from the Jiajing and Wanli reigns and the exhibits demonstrate the technical innovations and refinements during these two reigns, particularly with regard to ceramics with polychrome (wucai) decoration. The exhibition also explores the Jiajing emperor's infatuation with Daoism as manifested by the numerous Daoist motifs that decorated the ceramics of his reign. All exhibits shown in colour and well-described. Dual texts in Chinese and English. Out-of-print and hard to obtain.
