The Shape of Things: Chinese and Japanese Art from the Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller 3rd Collection
This exhibition of ceramics, metalworks, sculpture, and painting demonstrates that a depth of information can be revealed through the careful observation and study of the form of an object.
This exhibition of ceramics, metalworks, sculpture, and painting demonstrates that a depth of information can be revealed through the careful observation and study of the form of an object. The first of the show’s three sections includes objects made for ritual and religious functions, featuring elegantly formed Chinese bronzes and porcelains, stately Chinese and Japanese sculptures of tomb guardians, and Japanese Buddhist paintings and sculptures. Objects of daily use, particularly ceramic vessels produced for drinking and eating, make up the second group. The final section consists of decorative objects ranging from a jade sculpture of the mythical Chinese beast known as a bixie to paintings mounted as hanging scrolls, albums, and screens. Approximately 90 works from the permanent collection, a number of which have rarely been displayed, have been selected for this exhibition.
