Catalogue of an exhibition at the National Palace Museum in Taiwan showing 213 of the finest examples of Song dynasty Ding wares from the Museum's collection. The exhibition is divided into three main sections: Early White Porcelains and Ding Ware; The Decoration of Ding Ware; Ding Porcelains and Their Influence. It is worth noting that these superb ceramics were much coveted by China's imperial rulers and all the pieces here exhibited are from the former Chinese imperial collection. All 213 exhibits illustrated in fine colour plates. Introductions and forewords, list of contents, brief introductions to each section and captions to plates in English. Main text in Chinese. An excellent addition to the literature on the subject. Recommended.
