The Museum of East Asian Art’s collection of Chinese objects spans 7,000 years, from the Neolithic to modern times. We celebrate our 25th Anniversary with a special exhibition displaying the extraordinary human inventiveness and creativity in the development of Chinese art.
China is a vast country – its modern-day territory is almost as big as the entire continent of Europe. China’s many years of history has seen waves of invasion, trade, and the rise and fall of numerous dynasties. With many different climates and landscapes, lifestyles and regional cultures vary from one place to another. The art of China has developed in response to these diverse elements.
