"The Embodied Image: Chinese Calligraphy from the John B. Elliott Collection"
2000-09-15 until 2001-01-07
Metropolitan Museum of Art
New York, NY, USA

The most important and comprehensive exhibition of its kind ever assembled in the West, The Embodied Image: Chinese Calligraphy from the John B. Elliott Collection—on display through January 7, 2001—brings together some 110 works of art from the two principal collections of Chinese calligraphy that were formed in the United States. More than fifty-five masterworks from the John B. Elliott Collection of The Art Museum, Princeton University—perhaps the finest such collection outside Asia—are integrated with a number of similar masterpieces from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, most notably from the John M. Crawford Jr. Collection, and loans from six private collections. Spanning the period from the 4th century to the modern era, the exhibition explores the stylistic range and individuality of many of the leading artists of the last 1,000 years.

The exhibition was organized by The Art Museum, Princeton University.

The exhibition was made possible by the Publications Committee of the Department of Art and Archaeology, Princeton University, the National Endowment for the Arts, The Henry Luce Foundation, Inc., The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Martha Sutherland Cheng, the Joint Committee on Chinese Studies of the American Council of Learned Societies, and the Social Sciences Research Council; and anonymous donors.

The exhibition in New York is made possible by The Dillon Fund.
