Wu Tung

From the MFA’s extensive collection of Chinese ceramics, renowned scholar Wu Tung has chosen 78 outstanding examples to help lead the general reader through a comprehensive exploration of 5,000 years of ceramic art. With these examples, many of them published here for the first time, he leads you through the history of Chinese ceramics, the aesthetic experience they evoke, and the culture that produced them. Also included are brief sketches on the principal types of Chinese ceramics, a concise essay on the conservation and study of ceramics, short texts about the archaeology of the tombs, and kiln sites. The entire scope of transforming earth into art is revealed in these beautiful objects and this magnificent book.
