The Metropolitan Museum’s landmark exhibition Age of Empires: Chinese Art of the Qin and Han Dynasties (221 B.C.-A.D. 220) presents exceptional examples of the terracotta warriors along side extremely rare ceramics, metalwork, textiles, sculpture, painting, calligraphy, and architectural models, drawn exclusively from 32 museums and archaeological institutions in the People’s Republic of China. A majority of the works has never before been seen in the West. The exhibition will also examine ancient China’s relationship with the outside world.
The First Emperor of the Qin Dynasty is renowned for unifying China. His short-lived dynasty (221 B.C.-206 B.C.) laid the foundation for the Han Dynasty (206 B.C-A.D 220), China’s first ‘Golden Age.’ The artifacts on view illustrate a very high level of craftsmanship and sense of aesthetic, as well as reflect the exchange of goods and technology between China and its neighbors in Central Asia and beyond. New research indicated closer relationships with Persian, India and Rome than previously known.
