Fourteen plates on the wall – and each one a masterpiece of Chinese porcelain painting from around 1700. Due to the highly nuanced predominant green tones, this style of decoration became known in Europe as the ‘familie verte’ or ‘green family’. With the brilliance of their finely painted and sophisticated compositions, these plates are ranked among the technical and artistic highlights in our East Asia Collection.
