"The Artist as Collector: Masterpieces of Chinese Painting from the C.C. Wang Family Collection"
1999-09-03 until 2000-01-09
Metropolitan Museum of Art
New York, NY, USA United States of America

On view are some 60 paintings from the C.C. Wang Family Collection in the Metropolitan Museum. Highlighted are 12 promised gifts from this renowned collection including Riverbank, one of the earliest and most important landscape hanging scrolls in the history of Chinese art made by Oscar L. Tang, a member of The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Board of Trustees, and his family. A choice group of loans from The Cleveland Museum of Art, The Art Museum of Princeton University, and the Wang family are also included, as well as a small selection of paintings by C.C. Wang. Spanning ten centuries of painting history, the exhibition illuminates the entire tradition of scholar painting from its birth and early development in the Song and Yuan dynasties (10th to 14th century) to its later transformation and elaboration during the Ming and Qing dynasties (14th to 20th century).

A full-day, international symposium will be held on December 11 in conjunction with the exhibition, exploring issues of authentication and connoisseurship in Chinese art.

The exhibition and catalogue are made possible with the support of the Tang Fund. The symposium and accompanying publication are made possible by the Tang Fund. Additional support is provided by The B.Y. Lam Foundation.
