"The first publication to explore Philadelphia Museum of Art's wide-ranging collection of Chinese art, offering an introduction to general readers and serving as a valuable resource for future research and scholarship. This catalogue of one hundred highlights, drawn from a collection of more than seven thousand objects spanning more than four thousand years, will be both a sumptuous visual record of the Philadelphia Museum of Art's most notable Chinese works and an informative and valuable reference for those interested in Chinese art. The objects have been selected to show not only the strengths of the collection, but also important and distinctive examples of Chinese art in different mediums. They are also intended to bring together the museum's Chinese collection, which is presently housed in such disparate departments as Chinese export art, costume and textiles, Sino-Tibetan art, and contemporary art--representing sculpture, ceramics, furniture, architectural interiors, textiles, and paintings"--
