Chinese Imperial Palace Paintings


It is well known that the Taipei Palace Museum houses some of the greatest treasures of Chinese culture collected by the Chinese Imperial Dynasties. Due to their great age and delicate conditions, innumerable masterworks collected by the successive emperors such as Qian-long, stored in the repository of the Imperial court are preserved to this day as treasures never allowed out of the museum. During the early 1970’s, the Taipei Palace Museum commissioned a specialist organization to reproduce the calligraphy and painting in its collection for appreciation by overseas audiences. Since then, the specialist has been successively publishing exquisite reproductions of calligraphy and paintings with complete fidelity to the original works in color, size and detail.
