The Orchid Pavilion Gathering:
Chinese Painting from the University of Michigan Museum of Art

January 23 through March 26, 2000
West Gallery

Highlights of the Museum's renowned collection of Chinese paintings will be on view in a fascinating presentation of sixty major works. Spanning over 900 years, these paintings document many of the major developments in Chinese painting, a medium with important links to the history, culture, and politics of China. Many of the works on view are large scrolls and, due to their fragility, are exhibited only rarely. This landmark exhibition will be accompanied by an extensive two-volume exhibition catalogue by University of Michigan Senior Curator of Asian Art, Marshall Wu.
