Masterpieces of Chinese Painting 700–1900 is a temporary exhibition introducing the key themes and aesthetics of Chinese painting over a span of 1200 years. It brings together some of the finest examples of Chinese painting, the majority of which are being exhibited in Europe for the first time. Some of the paintings are so fragile that they have to be changed during the exhibition.
