Emperors' Treasures : Chinese Art from the National Palace Museum, Taipei Paperback / softback


**Winner of 2017 Choice Outstanding Academic Title Award** Emperors' Treasures examines each ruler's distinct contribution to the arts and how each developed his or her aesthetic and connoisseurship. This Chinese art book book features artworks from the renowned National Palace Museum, Taipei.

It encompasses paintings, calligraphy, bronzes, ceramics, lacquer ware, jades, and textiles exemplifying the finest craftsmanship and imperial taste.

Emperors' Treasures explores the identities of eight Chinese rulers-seven emperors and one empress-who reigned from the early 12th through early 20th centuries.

They are portrayed in a story line that highlights artworks of their eras, from the dignified Song to the coarse yet subtle Yuan, and from the brilliant Ming until the final, dazzling Qing period.
