Art of China's Ming Dynasty Comes to Indy

"Power & Glory: Court Arts of China’s Ming Dynasty" is the first exhibition in the United States to focus on the full range of art from China’s Ming dynasty (1368-1644).

Organized by the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, the exhibition marks the first collaboration with three of China’s most prestigious institutions: The Palace Museum (Forbidden City) in Beijing, the Nanjing Municipal Museum, and the Shanghai Museum.

Ming artworks from these museums will be featured along with some of the finest items owned by the Asian Art Museum, such as the item at left.

"Power and Glory" opens at the Indianapolis Museum of Art 26 October, closing 11 January 2009.
