Art of China’s Middle Period

Funerary Mask, late 900s to early 1000s, Chinese

The museum’s collection of art from China’s Middle Period is special because only a handful of American institutions have such diverse examples of Liao (907–1125), Song (960–1279), Jin (1115–1234), and Yuan (1271–1368) dynasty ink painting, ceramics, and art created for the tomb. These compelling works can be seen exhibited throughout the Chinese art galleries.
