CHINESE PAINTINGS

The Chinese Paintings Gallery which adjoins China to AD 800 is the only gallery in Britain built for the display of Chinese paintings 

A changing programme of exhibitions showcases work primarily from the Ashmolean’s own collection, one of the foremost collections of modern Chinese paintings in Europe. Many exhibitions also include loan items from private collections both in the UK and abroad.
