Pauline Tsui will give an educational talk and slideshow of the special exhibition “Emperors’ Treasures” that had been on view at the San Francisco Asian Art Museum from June 17 to September 18. The show featured over 150 objects from one of the world’s greatest collections of Chinese art from the National Palace Museum, Taipei, most of which were seen in the United States for the first time. The artworks included paintings, calligraphy, bronze vessels, ceramics, lacquer ware, jades, and textiles. 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. Pauline will also show parallels of artworks from the Asian Art Museum’s permanent collection from the same era.
