The tour of Buddha and Shiva, Lotus and Dragon: Masterworks from the Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller 3rd Collection at Asia Society presents nearly seventy of the finest examples of Asian art in the United States drawn from Asia Society’s permanent collection. Co-organized by the American Federation of Arts and Asia Society Museum, this exhibition will showcase the extraordinary range of artworks that John D. Rockefeller 3rd and his wife Blanchette Hooker Rockefeller thoughtfully assembled between the 1940s and the 1970s. With highlights including spectacular Chinese vases, dynamic Indian Chola bronzes, and exquisite Southeast Asian sculptures, the exhibition reveals great achievements in Asian art spanning more than two millennia.
