This volume displays the highlights of the Cleveland Museum of Art's collection of Asian art, begun in 1913 when the museum was founded. It presents more than 100 of the finest objects including Chinese paintings and textiles, traditional Japanese ink paintings and medieval stoneware, and examples of Cambodian and early Indian stone sculpture. The Cleveland's treasures include: an extraordinary lacquered drum stand of China's Eastern Zhou dynasty; the Kumano Mandala; and "Snowscape with Figures", the only dated painting by Kim Che, the foremost artist from the Choson period in Korea. Michael Cunningham's introduction recounts the history of the collection's formation, and the commentaries reflect scholarship in the field.
