The Porcelain Room: Chinese Export Porcelain
January 30, 2020 - September 28, 2020
Fondazione Prada:
Largo Isarco, 2,
20139 Milano, Italy

More than 1,700 individual Chinese export porcelains, ranging from the 16th to the 19th centuries, gather inside Tom Potsma’s breathtaking immersive displays to explore the historical context, scope, and impact of this historical craft. Divided into three sections, the show touches upon the largest number of early Ming dynasty porcelains with European iconography ever shown together, 18th-century table wares and everyday objects festooned with regional wildlife, and the tradition of magnificent porcelain rooms that appeared in European palaces and aristocratic houses. —Ryan Waddoups
