Conference: Fired to Last: The Global Reach of Chinese Export Porcelain
The conference is hosted by Jorge Welsh Research & Publishing. It brings together six scholars to discuss the prolific production of Chinese export wares, the historical and geopolitical context of Europe and Asia at the time, contemporary collectors and some of the great collections still in existence and how these global cultural encounters and trade influenced society at large becoming an important factor in shaping the Modern World. This conference also coincides with the launch of Volume IV of The RA Collection of Chinese Ceramics, a collection of cross cultural works of art that includes what is considered the most comprehensive and relevant collection of Chinese export porcelain at the present time.
