"China: West Meets East at The Met" showcases selections of Chinese masterworks from the Neolithic period and the Great Bronze Age to the Han, Tang, Song, Yuan, Ming, and Qing dynasties, including ancient bronzes; precious porcelain; jade and carved lacquer; painted silk scrolls; and monumental Buddhist cave sculptures. The tranquil Scholar's Garden, modeled after a 17th century Ming garden court, invites meditation and reflection, while behind the scenes in the Asian Conservation Studio, fragile paintings on silk, satin, and paper are meticulously restored.
