China

Just back from seeing China, The Three Emperors 1662-1795; a wonderful exhibition at the Royal Academy in London. Today was a Preview Day before the exhibition opens to the public tomorrow; there was far too much to look at and appreciate in one visit and I'm planning to go back soon for another look round. The embroidered robes

and the carved red lacquer pieces, especially this writing set

were breathtaking, not to mention painted scrolls, furniture and calligraphy. I'm off to make a cuppa now and sit down with it and the enormous (and enormously heavy) exhibition catalogue.....
