This exhibition catalogue from the National Palace Museum highlights some of the over 100 Ch'ien-lung (Qianlong) period yang-ts'ai (yang cai) ceramics in the permanent collection. Known for combining Western painting techniques with enamel glazing, these works are quite representative of Ch'ing court ceramics. With production overseen by the emperor himself, these exquisite examples of yang-ts'ai porcelains are unequalled among painted porcelains in terms of their beauty, intricacy and elegance, thus promising to be a huge attraction among lovers of Chinese art from all over the world.
