From dust jacket: "Only two major exhibitions from the fabled Chinese Palace Museum collections have been seen in the West--the first in London in 1935-36 and the second in the United States in 1961-62. These two exhibitions provided an extraordinary stimulus to the study of Chinese Culture, revolutionized Asian art studies in the West, and opened the eyes of the public to the artistic traditions of Chinese civilization. [This book] is the publication that accompanies the third great exhibition of Chinese masterworks to travel to the West."
