Faces of China: Portrait Painting of the Ming and Qing Dynasties

Faces of China is the first exhibition explicitly dedicated to Chinese portrait painting. The selection of more than 100 paintings from the collections of the Palace Museum Beijing and the Royal Ontario Museum Toronto, most of which have never been shown in Europe, spans a period of more than 500 years. The main focus is on the unique portraits of the Qing Dynasty, including images of members of the imperial court, ancestors, and military figures. An extensive catalog will accompany the exhibition.
