Burrell at Kelvingrove: Collecting Chinese Treasures

Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum
Argyle Street,
Glasgow, United Kingdom
Sep 14, 2019 To Mar 31, 2020

Detail: See some of the wonderful porcelain, bronze and Jade from the Chinese Dynastic periods collected by Sir William Burrell, including Tang Dynasty tomb guardian figures, elaborate forms of ritual bronzes that are more than 2,500 years old and a rare Ming Dynasty blue-and-white tankard.

The works for this exhibition have been chosen by Jorge Welsh, an internationally renowned collector, dealer and expert in Chinese art with galleries in London and Lisbon, and Dr Yupin Chung, curator of Chinese and East Asian Art for Glasgow Museums.

The amount of Chinese works in the Burrell Collection represents the third largest collection in Europe. It contains around 146 pieces of jade which date as far back as the Shang dynasty, 170 bronzes and more than 1400 ceramics including objects from the Neolithic period.
