Treasures of the Chinese Qing Dynasty Palace Glass

Under the last imperial dynasty of China, the Great Qing, art and cultural innovation flourished. European missionaries revived the languishing glass industry in Guangzhou and developed the city into a new hub for glass making. The art form garnered the support of the Kangxi Emperor, and the Qing palace created glass workshops and a glass production plant. In 1696, under the supervision of the emperor and through the efforts of the missionaries and Chinese craftsmen, the factory began producing glassware that showcased quality, technique, and exceptional beauty.
Chinese collector Liu Xinyan has been absorbed in the world of glass collecting for more than thirty years. Under his influence, the husband-and-wife team Xiang Xiaoqun (also known by the nickname “Lady Antique”) and Zhong Guomiao began a collection of their own. Their vast collection of Chinese Qing dynasty palace glass is showcased through 224 images in this stunning full-color volume. The exquisite works housed in Treasures of Chinese Qing Dynasty Palace Glass reflect the highest level of development in art and technology under the Qing.
In partnership with Intron International Cultural Development, the Unicorn Chinese Artists series features leading Chinese contemporary artists whose works are not yet well known enough outside China.
