Sumptuous | East Asian Lacquer, 14th–20th Century

Oct 25, 2014 - Aug 16, 2015 Metropolitan Museum Of Art, New York

For more than two millennia, lacquer has been a primary medium in the arts of East Asia. This installation explores the many ways in which this material has been manipulated to create designs by painting, carving, or inlaying precious materials such as gold or mother-of-pearl. Drawn entirely from the permanent collection, this display celebrates the artistry and creativity needed to work this demanding material while illustrating both the similarities and differences found in the lacquer arts of China, Korea, and Japan.

Painting with Threads | Chinese Tapestry and Embroidery, 12th–19th Century

Oct 25, 2014 - Aug 16, 2015 Metropolitan Museum Of Art, New York

The thinness and strength of silk make it the ideal material for weaving or embroidering elegant, painting-like images characterized by fluid outlines, rich colors, and even the addition of calligraphic inscriptions and seals. Drawn from the Metropolitan's superb holdings of Chinese tapestries and embroideries, this installation, which features several pieces not exhibited previously, presents dramatic landscapes, flowers and birds, famous immortals, and stunning examples of calligraphy, showcasing the artistic imagination and technical sophistication of China's textile artists.
