Curated by Professors Dorothy Wong and Daniel Ehnbom

The Fralin Museum of Art’s permanent collection encompasses a wide range of cultures and periods. Over the Museum’s history, particular strengths have grown in the collections of East and South Asian paintings. This exhibition, drawn primarily from the permanent collection with select loans from private collections, is curated by Professors Dorothy Wong and Daniel Ehnbom to illustrate the breadth of the holdings in these areas. On view will be works from China, Japan, and India ranging from the sixteenth to twenty-first centuries.

The Fralin Museum of Art’s programming is made possible through generous support of The Joseph and Robert Cornell Memorial Foundation. We also wish to thank our in-kind donors: WTJU 91.1 FM and Ivy Publications LLC’s Charlottesville Welcome Book.
