The MFA’s re-installed Song Gallery will celebrate the new pinnacles of artistic production that were reached in China between the 10th and the 13th centuries. The flourishing economy of this period allowed the imperial court, the upwardly mobile elite, and monasteries to commission fine works of art, and inspired artists to explore fresh techniques and styles to delight their clients. The gallery will illustrate these developments through the display of ceramics, painting and lacquerware, that were produced in competing kilns and workshops. In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to learn more about this fascinating period in art and history, and explore the rest of the Museum’s renowned Chinese art collection.
