Product Description

China’s entry into the modern era was shaped by unprecedented internal turmoil and external pressures, which brought a forceful end to two millennia of imperial rule and cultural insularity.

This book is published in conjunction with the exhibition “Nineteenth- and Twentieth-Century Chinese Paintings from the Robert H. Ellsworth Collection in The Metropolitan Museum of Art”, held at the museum from 30th January-19th August 2001.
