In Focus: An Assembly of Gods

26 September 2017 - 25 March 2018

This exhibition takes an in-depth look at a large Chinese pantheon painting from the early nineteenth century, in which heaven, land, and water provide the setting for a fascinating assembly of gods rendered in fine ink outlines and vibrant color. Pantheon paintings and prints are traditionally displayed in Chinese homes on New Year’s Day when the gods are believed to visit for an annual inspection of the deeds of man. The meticulously painted work features a range of Buddhist, Daoist, Confucian, and popular Chinese deities.
