Philip Hu, curator of Asian art at the Saint Louis Art Museum in Missouri, will present a free lecture entitled "China over Seas and Oceans: The Maritime Travels of Yuan and Ming Porcelains.”

Beginning in the early 14th century, Chinese porcelain made its way to many parts of the world, largely through maritime trade routes spanning East Asia, Southeast Asia, the Indian subcontinent, Persia and the Ottoman Empire. The shapes and decoration of such Chinese porcelains were often inspired by non-ceramic prototypes and specifically tailored to the varying tastes of foreign markets. This lecture examines selected highlights from the Sam and Myrna Myers Collection in connection with major types of the Chinese porcelain diaspora.
