Having been to China twice and generally in love with their art and culture, I had to see this show at the Royal Academy of Arts. China: The Three Emperors absolutely lived up to my expectations. The size, range and quality of the works was impressive. Real care was taken to preserve all the clothing, furniture and scrolls — everything was in perfect condition.
Learning from previous experience, we got the boys ‘kids’ audio guides which gave us a full two hours to peruse. The scrolls and paintings were the most exciting for me. The gallery had unrolled some 60-70 feet of many of them. The detail was fantastic.
If you have a chance to see this, make the effort. Its worth it.
