Masterpieces of Chinese Painting

June 12, 2010 – November 28, 2010

Freer Gallery of Art
Jefferson Drive & 12th Street, SW
Washington, DC

Location: Gallery 13

Some of the finest Chinese paintings in the Freer Gallery's collection are on view, including several by well-known Chinese artists that have not been displayed in years. Diverse traditional categories are represented, such as religious and secular portraits from the Northern Song dynasty (960-1127), landscapes from the Southern Song dynasty (1127-1279), paintings of literati during the Yuan dynasty (1279-1368), artworks produced in the Zhe and Wu schools of the Ming dynasty (1368-1644), and images of orthodox and individual painters of the early Qing dynasty (1644-1911). Together these exceptional works trace the development of Chinese painting over generations.
