The Artist as Collector: Masterpieces of Chinese Painting from the C. C. Wang Family Collection

Displaying more than sixty paintings from the renowned C. C. Wang Family Collection now in the Metropolitan Museum, this exhibition illuminates the entire tradition of scholar painting from its birth and early development in the Song and Yuan dynasties (tenth to fourteenth century) to its later transformation and elaboration during the Ming and Qing dynasties (fourteenth to twentieth century). The exhibition highlights twelve promised gifts—including Riverbank, one of the most important landscape hanging scrolls in the history of Chinese art. Also on view are a choice group of loans from the Wang family and a small selection of paintings by C. C. Wang himself.
