The Emperor’s Orders: Designs from the Qianlong Imperial Workshop (1736 -1796)

The Emperor’s Orders: Designs from the Qianlong Imperial Workshop (1736 -1796)

This exhibition features 10 objects in various media–painting, jade, ceramic, glass, and metalwork–all created for the greatest art collector in 18th century China, the Qianlong Emperor. Works from the Norton Museum’s own collection are featured and accompanied by important loans representing superlative examples of works produced in or from designs provided by the Imperial Palace Workshop. Being extremely inquisitive, this emperor invited many foreign artists to work at his court, including Mughal jade carvers, and Jesuit priest painters and glassmakers.

Local presentation of this exhibition is made possible in part through the generosity of the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
