New Installation in the Asian Art Galleries
Second–Floor Galleries
On view through November 19, 2023

This new installation in the Asian Art Galleries includes a Daoist priest’s robe from 17th-century China, another robe from 19th-century Kashmir, and two 17th-century Iranian tapestries.

Addition displays include:

Femininity and Its Forms features Iranian and Indian paintings depicting idealized, elegantly dressed, and bejeweled women, whether in intimate or public spaces. The subjects appear on their own, in groups, and, at times, with their lovers.

Omnipresent: Tradition in Chinese Painting explores the endless allusions to earlier compositions and styles of brushwork in Chinese painting. As the installation demonstrates, the ability to imaginatively engage with earlier traditions is one of the standards by which Chinese artists have been judged for centuries.

Variety and Vibrancy in Japanese Calligraphic Art highlights the multivalent position of writing—as a means of self-expression, as religious imagery, and as a method of communication—in Japanese paintings and woodblock prints.
