10am – 5:30pm
Get an up-close look Chinese portraits created during the Ming and Qing dynasties, that come from the renowned collections of the Museum’s Far Eastern section.
Showcasing a culturally important, but often-overlooked aspect of Chinese art and culture, the exhibition’s portraits are astonishing in their detail and embedded symbolism. The visual appeal of the exhibition’s 25 works – some remarkably large – is enhanced by a number of sartorial and personal accessories, objects carefully selected for their resemblance to those seen in the paintings.
