The Museums collection of Asian art showcases the material prosperity experienced under the Ming, whose name aptly translates as brilliant.

Art History

Early in th Ming dynasty (13681644) was a period of cultural restoration and expansion. The reestablishment of an indigenous Chinese ruling house after the demise of the Yuan dynasty led to the imposition of court-dictated styles in the arts. Large-scale landscapes, flower-and-bird compositions, and figural narratives were favored as images that would glorify the new dynasty and convey its benevolence, virtue, and majesty.
