Sculpting Nature: Jade from the Collection

Crow Collection of Asian Art
2010 Flora St.,
Dallas, Texas, USA
Mar 21, 2017 To Mar 10, 2018


Detail: The permanent collection of the Crow Collection of Asian Art is comprised of a large number of various types of jade objects from the Qing dynasty (1644-1911). This outstanding collection of later-period jades is among the finest of its kind in the United States. Shining a spotlight on this strength of the museum's collection, the exhibition presents a stunning selection of jade objects that reflect multiple aspects of Chinese culture – from archaic ritual, through the world of the scholars, to the refinements of courtly life. Jade, a precious material found in nature, is fashioned into a diverse variety of objects that reflect Chinese culture, beliefs, and aesthetic tastes.
