  3. A tradition of Excellence • Some of the earliest pottery has been discovered in China, dating back to 9000 BC, and ceramic goods from the region can be traced back to the dynasties under which they were created. • In fact, the first porcelain is believed to have been created under the Han dynasty from 202 BC to 220 AD. As China’s history is rich with beautiful ceramic art, it’s no surprise that the most expensive vases in the world are Chinese.

On the other hand, Ming Dynasty paintings of birds and flowers and people are among the best detail paintings.

  6. Ming Dynasty • The great achievement of the Ming Dynasty architects was that they built the great palace called the Forbidden City. This was the palace of the Ming Dynasty emperors, in Beijing, and it was the center of the government of China. It was called the Forbidden City because nobody could go in or out without the emperor's permission.

  8. Ming Dynasty • Chinese Ceramics range from construction materials such as bricks and tiles, to hand-built pottery vessels fired in bonfires or kilns, to the sophisticated Chinese porcelain wares made for the imperial court. • Porcelain is so identified with China that it is still called "china" in everyday English usage.

  9. Ming Dynasty • Most later Chinese ceramics, even of the finest quality, were made on an industrial scale, thus few names of individual potters were recorded. Many of the most renowned workshops were owned by or reserved for the Emperor, and large quantities of ceramics were exported as diplomatic gifts or for trade from an early date.

  16. The Ming Dynasty lasted from 1368-1644 AD. • Sixteen emperors ruled over the whole of China spanning 276 years. A series of claimants to the Ming throne continued to claim the throne of what was known as the Southern Ming until the last was executed in 1662. • The imperial porcelain factory was established at Jingdezhen (Ching-te-chen, 景德鎮) at the beginning of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), and from this time the position of Jingdezhen as the center of porcelain production became consolidated. • The imperial wares that were specially manufactured for use at court were made particularly exquisitely and were marked with the reign mark of the emperor himself. • http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/14/ming-dynasty-vase-new-york-auction_n_1884399.html
