The Douglas Dillon Legacy: Chinese Painting for the Metropolitan Museum



The Douglas Dillon Legacy: Chinese Painting for the Metropolitan Museum
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  Metropolitan Museum of Art  •  Ongoing
 
Douglas Dillon (1909–2003), former chairman of the Metropolitan Museum’s Board of Trustees, became involved with Asian art out of his respect for Asia’s importance in world affairs and the need to represent its cultures at the Metropolitan in a comprehensive manner. This exhibition, comprising more than 60 masterworks of Chinese painting acquired through the generosity of Mr. Dillon and The Dillon Fund, as well as several noteworthy gifts presented in his honor or memory, highlight his lasting contribution to the field of Chinese art. Spanning more than 1,000 years of Chinese painting, from the 8th to the 18th century, the exhibition constitutes a survey of all the major schools and trends of the last four dynasties.
