The Glass that Gallé Adored — Glass from the Qing Imperial Collection

April 25(Wed) - July 1(Sun)

The Qing Dynasty was an extraordinary period in the long history of Chinese glass. The great strides made during this period were due to the decision of the forth Qing emperor, Kangxi, to establish a glassworks inside the Forbidden City in 1696. His successor, Yongzheng, continued the project, which reached its peak during the reign of the sixth emperor, Qianlong. Qing glass treated transparency and opaqueness as equals and was imbued with great dignity. In this exhibition, we introduce Qing works with extraordinarily beautiful designs with works by Emile Gallé influenced by them.
