“The Porcelain Room” is an exhibition curated by Jorge Welsh and Luísa Vinhais, that explores the historical context, scope and impact of Chinese export porcelain.

The project brings together examples of porcelain made between the 16th and 19th centuries for various markets, social and religious groups, particularly in Europe and the Middle East. This production demonstrates the ability of Chinese craftsmen and traders to respond to the demands and tastes of different targets.

The display, devised by Tom Postma Design, consists of a brown velvet-covered structure divided into three sections. The first part of the exhibition includes The largest number of early 16th to mid 17th century Ming dynasty porcelains with European iconography ever shown together. This production falls into the category of “First orders”, a term used to refer to the first commissions of Chinese porcelain by the Portuguese after their arrival in China. Existing examples of “First orders” are very rare, only 150 objects have survived to this day. Over 45 examples have been selected for this exhibition, on loan from major public and private collections around the world. The exhibited objects represent a wide range of European “First orders” in terms of type, iconography and period of realization. This first section also includes a small group of rare pieces made for the Islamic market.
