Porcelain glamor

The National Museum of China has recently completed upgrading the layout of several of its permanent exhibitions including Ancient Chinese Porcelain, which shows more than 300 fine specimens from different periods in its collection. The show introduces the many aspects of ceramic-making in China — methods of creation, technical advancements throughout the centuries, the diversity of shapes and decoration styles, and the role of porcelain in exchanges between China and the rest of the world. The display includes some of the most famous types of Chinese porcelain, such as a cobalt-blue qinghua jar of the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368), a black-glazed jianzhan teacup, produced in the famous kilns of Jianyang, East China's Fujian province, used at tea ceremonies in the Song Dynasty (960-1279), and famille rose ware, a popular, pink-enameled decoration at the court of Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). It is a celebration of the aesthetics held dear by ancient Chinese.

9 am-5 pm, closed on Mondays.16 Chang'an Avenue, Dongcheng district, Beijing. 010-6511-6400.
