“Immortal Landscapes: Jade from the Collection” spotlights mountains, which lie at the heart of Chinese culture and art. A bridge between the human and transcendental realms, mountains have provided an enduring source of inspiration for poets, scholars and artists and continue to remain an important theme within China’s various artistic traditions. Drawn from the museum’s outstanding collection of later-period Chinese jade objects, this exhibition will focus on carved jade representations of mountain landscapes and forms from nature. For both sculptor and viewer, landscape imagery illustrates an understanding of the inseparability of oneself from the surrounding world, where the journey through the mountains symbolizes the path to an immortal realm.
