Enduring Gift: Chinese Ceramics from the Cloud Wampler Collection

January 1, 2014 - April 21, 2015

For nine years, beginning in 1960, Cloud Wampler donated some 170 Asian works to the Everson Museum. The collection is dominated by a particularly strong core of Chinese ceramics. Spanning nearly 2,000 years, from the Han Dynasty in 200 BCE to the Ching Dynasty that ended in 1912, this selection offers a survey of forms, styles and glazes that are considered still today to be the pinnacle of aesthetic and technical achievements.
