Catalogue of an exhibition jointly presented by the Art Museum, The Chinese University of Hong Kong and the Jingdezhen Ceramic Museum which gives an overview of ceramic production in Jingdezhen in the last century. There are 186 items of porcelain plaques, wares and sculptures decorated in famille rose enamels, wucai enamels, monochromes and underglaze blue. The rich contents include imperial wares for the last Qing Emperor Xuantong and also the short-lived Hongxian regime, painted porcelain by accomplished ceramic artists including the celebrated group of the "Eight Friends of Zhushan", sculptures and painted plaques of the Cultural Revolution period (1960s and 70s), a variety of antique-type wares and porcelain painted with new techniques. The majority of the pieces are selected from the collection of the Jingdezhen Ceramic Museum – this is augmented by items from private and public collections in Hong Kong.
