Introduction by Denise Patry Leidy
Catalogue entries by Maria Antnia Pinto de Matos

The companion catalogue to The Met exhibition, this beautifully illustrated volume explores the period from the late sixteenth to the eighteenth century when Chinese porcelain became a global luxury, and in doing so, transformed both the European ceramic industry and fashionable styles of dining and drinking. Featuring exquisite and unusual pieces from an important Brazilian private collection, it challenges the long- standing tradition of cataloguing Chinese ceramics as domestic or trade items.

In addition to exploring the trade in Chinese ceramics within Asia, this new book looks at the development of ceramic shapes and designs that reflect the long history of exchange between China and the Islamic world, as well as the period in the late sixteenth century when works reflecting both Chinese and Islamic decorative traditions were introduced and incorporated into Europe and the Americas.

Denise Patry Leidy is the Brooke Russel Astor Curator of Chinese Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Maria Antnia Pinto de Matos is director of the Tile Museum in Lisbon.
