The World of Khubilai Khan: Chinese Art in the Yuan Dynasty

New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art hosts The World of Khubilai Khan: Chinese Art in the Yuan Dynasty.

September 28, 2010 12:00am to January 2, 2011 12:00am

The World of Khubilai Khan is a major international loan exhibition of the arts and material culture of China during the Yuan dynasty (1271-1368). The exhibition covers the period from the first major incursion by the Mongols into northern China in 1215 (the year Khubilai Khan was born), to the end of the dynasty he founded. The art style that developed during this period is usually associated with modern Chinese cultural forms, from landscape painting to blue-and-white porcelain. The exhibition features over 220 works of art as well as archaeological finds drawn principally from museums in China, with additional loans from Japan, Europe and the United States. Yuan arts have not been featured on this scale at an American museum for many decades, and many of the featured objects are being exhibited in the U.S. for the first time.
