From Palace to Studio: Chinese Women Artists, 1900 to the present

Exhibition documenting how 20th-century Chinese women painters emerged as independent artists with their own incomes, studios and international reputations.

A highlight of the exhibition is a painting by Miao Jiahui (c.1841-1919), a female artist who was retained as a "ghost painter" by China's Empress Dowager Cixi around the beginning of the 20th century.

The role of this accomplished artist, who rarely signed her own works, was to produce paintings in the empress’s name. The Ashmolean boasts the largest collection of modern Chinese art in the western world.

Tues-Wed 10.00-17.00. Thurs-Sat 10.00-19.00. Sun 12.00-17.00. Mon closed.
