Arts of China at the Brooklyn Museum
The Brooklyn Museum’s comprehensive collection of Chinese art spans more than five thousand years of Chinese artistic accomplishment, and boasts a diversity of art forms including jades, bronzes, lacquer, sculpture, painting, and calligraphy. This fall, the Museum opens newly reinstalled galleries for its renowned Arts of China collection, featuring recent acquisitions, new commissions, and rarely seen historical treasures. The Brooklyn Museum’s large collection of cloisonné enamels, many from the Chinese imperial collection, are featured, along with masterpieces of bronze such as a Shang dynasty ritual vessel (gong) and a Han dynasty goose. Also on view are a selection of ceramics, including the Museum’s world-famous Yuan dynasty Wine Jar with Fish and Aquatic Plants, widely acknowledged to be one of the finest blue-and-white porcelains in the Western hemisphere.
