This book is the catalogue of the exhibition, “Virtuous Treasures: Chinese Jades for the Scholar’s Table”. Featuring over 140 jades, dating mostly to the Qing dynasty (1644-1911), this exhibition brings together for the first time jades from several private collections, alongside examples from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the Art Museum of the Chinese University of Hong Kong to illustrate the extraordinary achievements of the jade carvers art. The exhibits include small fondling items carved into pleasingly tactile forms that were carried around to bring delight and inspiration to their owners; specially-commissioned items bearing the mark of individual artists such as Lu Zigang of the Ming dynasty (1368-1644); and monumental jades imitating mountains or ritual bronze vessels that declared not only the taste but also the wealth of their owners.
