Elegant & Vogue: Chinese Export Fans in the 18th-20th Centuries

Date: Until May 5

Time: 9 a.m.-5 p.m. (Closed on Mondays)

Place: Guangdong Museum


This exhibition shows 163 Chinese fans exported from the 18th to 20th century. Fans were once regarded as indispensable garment ornaments by women in Europe. The export fan was a kind of export handicraft which emerged under the background of the maritime trade between China and the West in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). Chinese craftsmen, especially Guangzhou craftsmen, combined the Cantonese craftsmanship with Western aesthetics and created a large number of fans for export. These exquisite fans were relatively cheap, which greatly satisfied the keen desire and demand in the Western market. Therefore, "made in Canton" has become a well-known brand throughout the world.
