Overview

Alongside our special exhibition of the Eight Masters of Yangzhou, we introduce crafts of the Ming and Qing dynasties in China. With a number of crafts that may have delighted the eyes of literati such as the Eight Masters of Yangzhou, including colorful and gorgeous ceramics, as well as exquisitely-expressed carved lacquer and raden mother-of-pearl inlay, we will vicariously experience a part of the crafts enjoyed by the literati.
