The show features over 150 objects from one of the world’s greatest collections of Chinese art from the National Palace Museum, Taipei, most of which are seen in the United States for the first time. The artworks include paintings, calligraphy, bronze vessels, ceramics, lacquer ware, jades, textiles and historical documents. Learn about this treasure trove of emperors’ prized possessions, including artworks they themselves created, and how emperors’ personal tastes shaped the evolution of art in China.
