Bowdoin Collects: Chinese Ceramics, Jades, and Paintings
January 31, 2019 - February 1, 2019
Rarely seen masterpieces from Bowdoin’s collection offer insights into the materials, technologies, and changing tastes that shaped Chinese art over the past five centuries. Selections range from a Ming-dynasty porcelain box and an eighteenth-century jade bowl from the Qianlong Emperor’s personal collection to a recently acquired work by one of modern China’s most revered painters, Chen Yifei. This exhibition runs February 1, 2019 – January 5, 2020.
