Empresses Of China's Forbidden City

This exhibition is the first to explore the role of empresses in shaping China’s last dynasty- the Qing dynasty – from 1644 to 1912. Nearly 200 spectacular objects from the Palace Museum tell the little-known stories of how imperial women influenced court politics, art and religion.

Timed to mark the 40th anniversary of the establishment of U.S.-China diplomatic relations, Empresses of China’s Forbidden City is organized by the Peabody Essex Museum; the Smithsonian’s Freer|Sackler, Washington, D.C.; and the Palace Museum, Beijing.
