Chinese Art

Rowe Collection  ©LCVA

For generations Chinese historiography has relied on the study of artifacts collected during archaeological digs. Antiquarians and historians in China have revealed aspects of the culture and life of ancient societies by interpreting designs and determining the uses of these objects. Through the study of the Rowe Collection, which includes archaic pottery, rare ritual bronzes, remarkable jade carving, fine porcelain and menacing ceramic tomb figures, the complicated history of China begins to unfold.
