More than 200 works of art drawn from the collection of the Palace Museum-court paintings, furniture, costumes, sculpture, decorative objects, arms, and armor-highlight the artistic accomplishments of the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties, with a focus on the mid-Qing dynasty of the 18th century. In addition, the book features a number of works selected from VMFA's collection. These magnificent artworks, all reproduced in full color, illustrate the splendor of the Forbidden City and offer an intimate look at its rituals, religion, and daily life.
