More than 1,000 works of art are shown in exquisite color reproductions, along with a special reference section of illustrated and translated texts, signatures, and seals. Since the collection will be dispersed for public use, Art Through a Lifetime provides the only opportunity for scholars, students, and admirers of Asian art to enjoy it in its entirety.
