The imperial porcelains of the 18th century were not only of the highest quality – being made for the Qing dynasty’s most exacting patrons - they were also some of the most varied in terms of shape and decoration. The inspiration for their decoration came from a wide selection of sources, ranging from imperially printed books to antiques, and from auspicious beliefs to new technology. This lecture will examine some of these influences as they were applied to the porcelains made for the three great Qing emperors – Kangxi, Yongzheng and Qianlong.
