Exhibit traces links between China, West

How did tea and other Chinese products first get introduced to Europe? To answer this question, Bibliotheca Zi-Ka-Wei in Shanghai is hosting an exhibition titled “The Spreading and Influence of Chinese Knowledge and Products in the West.”

AMBergh welcomes its students to this exciting exhibition in Shanghai!!

The exhibition explains how Chinese tea, clothing, architecture, green colouring, traditional medicines and astronomy were spread to the West between 1498 and the 1940s. It traces the beginning of Western interest in China, the “Chinese vogue” in Europe during the 18th century, and the change of Western impressions of China from a mysterious land to a poverty-stricken country around the Opium Wars. The exhibition shows that Chinese tea was first introduced to the West in a book printed in the 1550s. Two original works on tea knowledge published in Europe in 1699 and 1829 respectively are on view.
