National Palace Museum


Protecting and preserving the 7000-year cultural legacy of China with advanced technologies; Cooperating with private connoisseurs and ushering in exhibitions from the Mainland; Bringing the Museum's collection to the global community and welcoming arts of the world to the Museum. The Ch'ing imperial collection assumed by the Palace Museum was immense in quantity and superb in quality. Some works had been commissioned by the emperors and made by the Imperial Workshop, representing the highest standards of ingenuity and technical perfection. Some had been offered as tribute by foreign dignitaries and local officials or commoners, and the exquisiteness of such rarities require no reiteration.
