A fresh look at our passion for blue and white

A century after the craze for Asian exoticism began, the love affair with blue and white porcelain is going strong. The March reopening of the Peacock Room in the Smithsonian’s Freer Gallery, featuring an exhibit on “Chinamania” (the term the British press used to describe the 1870s craze for blue and white) along with wash drawings of vases by James Whistler, only deepens our passion. Intrigued by all things Ming, we survey modern twists on a classic Asian motif, at home and on the runway.
