Famille Rose 粉彩
The term Famille Rose describes a specific sort of Chinese porcelain introduced in the 17th century. The name comes from the dominant pink and carmine color painting that is applied over the glaze. This type of porcelain is in China known as Yangcai 洋彩 ‘foreign color’. The painting of the Famille Rose used opaque enamel colors in contrast to the transparent colors of the Famille Verte.
