With this 2017 calendar from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, celebrate the beloved blue-and-white design motif all year long with a range of media, eras, and locations from ceramics to textiles, from medieval ages to modern day, from China to Europe and everywhere in between. Each month features an extreme close-up of a different blue-and-white work showing the intricate pattern or design and the material used, accompanied by an image of the full work and a detailed caption.
