The court of the Qianlong Emperor (r. 1736-1795) created a quantity of carved jadeware, which catapulted jade arts to the pinnacle of popularity. The popular use of jadeware reflects various aspects of court culture, including daily life and sumptuary regulations. This exhibition includes 155 sets of jade objects, which provides a survey of the major types of jadeware and their functions at the Qianlong court. Palace of Accumulated Purity (Zhongcui gong).
