A slide/lecture by Lulan Yu, Adult Programs Coordinator of The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts will discuss this major exhibition now open at the VMFA in Richmond.
“Forbidden City: Imperial Treasures from the Palace Museum, Beijing will present nearly 200 works of art drawn from the collection of the Palace Museum. Featured works include paintings, sculptures, costumes, furniture, gold and silver, jade, lacquer, and other decorative arts. These artworks represent the imperial collection from the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties with a focus on the mid-Qing dynasty. In addition, the exhibition features a number of works drawn from VMFA’s collection. Forbidden City addresses how Qing rulers incorporated their Manchu nomadic traditions, adopted cultural elements from ethnic groups, and endeavored to create a diverse government and maintain societal harmony” – Virginia Museum of Fine Art
