Ming: 50 Years That Changed China
Private View | British Museum
Wednesday 1 October 2014 - 09:15
The Curator will give a brief introduction to our special early morning view of this major exhibition exploring a golden age in China’s history. Between AD 1400 and 1450, China was a global superpower run by the Ming dynasty, which established Beijing as the capital and built the Forbidden City. Ming China was thoroughly connected with the outside world. Chinese artists absorbed many fascinating influences and created some of the most beautiful objects and paintings ever made. The exhibition features a range of spectacular objects – exquisite porcelain, gold, jewellery, furniture, paintings, sculptures and textiles – from museums across China and the rest of the world.
This event has been organised by the London Events Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
