Chinese Buddhist Art, 10th–15th Centuries

Saint Louis Art Museum
1 Fine Arts,
St. Louis, Missouri, USA
Mar 30, 2018 To Aug 30, 2018


Detail: In the centuries after Buddhism was introduced to China in the early part of the Han dynasty (AD 25–220), the style of Chinese Buddhist art developed its own unique characteristics. Spanning nearly 600 years—from the Five Dynasties (907–960) to the early part of the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644)—Chinese Buddhist Art, 10th–15th Centuries explores this evolution with rarely exhibited works from the Museum’s collection that depict significant Buddhist subjects, including bodhisattvas, arhats, and lotuses.
