NEXT EXHIBITION
Anthony du Boulay Chinese Ceramic

CHINESE CERAMICS FROM THE ANTHONY DU BOULAY COLLECTION 
This exhibition will feature over twenty Chinese ceramics recently donated to the College by Anthony du Boulay (C, 1943-46). The collection is especially rich in works from the Song Dynasty (960-1279), often regarded as the golden age of Chinese ceramic art. It also focusses on the 17th and 18th centuries, especially pieces that show the impact of contact between China and Europe during this period.
