Filling the Interregnum: Zhengtong, Jingtai and Tianshun Porcelain of the Ming Dynasty in Hong Kong Collections, Art Museum
This catalogue features 80 items of interregnum porcelain wares, the majority of which were selected from local public and private collections in Hong Kong that were showcased in the 2012 exhibition “Filling the Interregnum: Ming Mid-Fifteenth Century Ceramics from Jingdezhen”. These are supplemented by recent acquisitions of the Art museum, as well as important works at lesser-known overseas collections, offering a good frame of reference. It is our sincere hope that this catalogue will help to generate further interest, as well as more in-depth research and discussions in the field. The publication of this catalogue, together with other special exhibitions in 2021, aptly celebrates the golden anniversary of the Art Museum.
