Masterpieces of Chinese Painting 700-1900 at the V&A Museum

Masterpieces of Chinese Painting 700-1900, the V&A's major autumn exhibition designed by Stanton Williams, will be on show from 26 October 2013 – 19 January 2014. The exhibition will be the most ambitious survey of one of the world's greatest artistic traditions. It will gather together the finest examples of Chinese painting created over a 1200 year period and will show more than 70 works including some of the earliest surviving Chinese paintings as well as other exceptionally rare works loaned from the greatest international collections. From small scale intimate works by monks and literati to a 14 metre-long scroll painting, many of the paintings will be shown in Europe for the first time.
