A selection of some of the best Asian art in the Scripps collection, this exhibition is in recognition of the work of Dr. Bruce Coats, professor of Art History and the Humanities and the Suzanne Ely Muchnic ’62 and Paul D. Muchnic Endowed Professorship. Curator Meher McArthur worked in concert with Dr. Coats in making the selections, many of which are counted among the treasures of the College.

This exhibition showcases many of the college’s finest Asian art treasures, selected for their exceptional artistic quality and historical importance.  Among the artworks on view are important Chinese scroll paintings from the Yuan (1279-1368), Ming (1368-1644) and Qing dynasties (1644-1912) that have recently undergone conservation. On display for the first time are recently donated Japanese porcelain works, and cloisonné enamels. The exhibition also includes a group of exquisite Japanese lacquered hair ornaments ranging from the 18th through 20th century.
