Art works belonging to the Qing Dynasty Emperor Qianlong (1711-1799), will be shown at Zhejiang Provincial Museum in Hangzhou. The 202 exhibits are on loan from the Palace Museum in Beijing and other museums and libraries across the country.

Qianlong was the longest-reigning monarch in the history of China and was a famous art collector, poet and essayist. The exhibits include his dragon-motif robe, seals, armors, stationery, calligraphy pieces and paintings. They reflect the emperor’s accomplishment and private life.

A celadon ware from the famous Guan Kiln of the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279) will be among the exhibits. It has an estimated market value of over 100 million yuan (US$15 million).

The exhibition from August 10 to November 10 will be one of the biggest shows at the museum since 2000. To provide better service and offer visitors a better experience, the museum will charge 30 yuan for the exhibition.
