The Last Golden Age of Imperial China:
The Emperor, The Economy, and The Arts in the 18th Century
Dr. Bennet Bronson, Co-Curator,
"Splendors of China's Forbidden City" Exhibit, Field Museum
Friday, March 26, 2004 at 8:00 p.m.

The Reign of Emperor Qianlong (1735 - 1795) during the Qing Dynasty marked China’s pinnacle of wealth and power. It was under the guidance of Qianlong that China made remarkable strides in literature, art, and in establishing peace between feuding western territories. The Field Museum has partnered with the Palace Museum of Beijing to present an unprecedented exhibition entitled Splendors of China's Forbidden City: The Glorious Reign of Emperor Qianlong. Never before seen outside of China, this exhibit includes approximately 400 artifacts, including a throne room, musical instruments, the emperor's funeral throne, a banquet setting, the wife's chamber and objects from the emperor’s private Tibetan Buddhist shrine. Dr. Bennet Bronson, Co-Curator of this exhibit, will discuss the exhibit, and implications of the artifacts on display in his talk.
