    The first American ship to sail goods direct from Canton in Southern China landed in Baltimore on August 9, 1785, just two years after the Treaty of Paris ended the Revolutionary War. Baltimoreans like Charles and Harriet Carroll of Homewood were eager for Chinese exports, regarded as objects of great luxury. This spotlight exhibition features examples of Chinese export reverse mirror paintings and porcelains drawn from Homewood Museum's holdings. These works of art are some of the world's most enduring examples of early globalization and inter-cultural communication.
