Beijing: Polish Art from the 15th – 20th Century

Treasures from Chopin’s Country: Polish Art from the 15th – 20th Century
6 February – 6 May
National Museum of China
“Treasures from Chopin’s Country：Polish art from the 15th-20th century”, the first large-scale presentation of Polish art to be seen in China, is addressed to the general public, for the majority of whom this will be their first contact with Poland, a country either unknown or else only associated with Chopin’s music, which is so popular in China. The exhibition’s prestige is increased by its location in the National Museum in Beijing. In appreciation of these exceptional circumstances, the exhibition’s organizer, the National Museum in Warsaw, has brought together approximately 350 works of art, from its own collections as well as exhibits borrowed from Poland’s largest museums. The exhibition presents paintings, sculpture, and decorative and applied art dating from the fifteenth to the twentieth century. We hope that through these exhibits, which reflect the twists and turns of Poland’s history, we will bring our distant country closer to the Chinese public.
