Title: A handbook of Chinese ceramics.


This handbook has been prepared to complement the new installation, "Chinese Ceramics through the Millennia", on the balcony of the Great Hall of The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The exhibition, a survey of the development of the ceramic art in China from early to modern times, draws almost entirely upon the more than 4,500 examples of Chinese pottery in the Museum collection


In this "Handbook" Suzanna Valenstein offers a synopsis of the historical and technological background of Chinese ceramic art as a frame of reference against which the Museum's collection can be better enjoyed.
