Forty-five masterpieces of Japanese and Chinese porcelain in elaborate European metal mounts began a three-museum tour at the Frick Collection. A number of drawings related to these unusual works of art were also on view. Organized and circulated by the International Exhibitions Foundation in Washington, D.C., this exhibition presented a wide range of exotic objects created for the high society of their time.
