Jonathan Hay presents a richly illustrated, in-depth introduction to the visual arts of China during the Ming to mid-Qing period, c.1570-1840, focusing on artefacts made for the home rather than export market. With photographs and reproductions of 228 objects, including paintings, porcelain, metalwares, carvings and furniture, the text explores issues of materials and technique, patronage and taste, and the cultural role of the decorative arts.
