Tigers, Cranes, Beautiful Women

10.11.2015 to 17.04.2016
Museum für Asiatische Kunst

In the Far East cranes symbolize long life, tigers courage and endurance, and, much as in the West, no depiction of a glamorous event is quite complete if it doesn't include beautiful women. These are all motifs that appear as central images on large-scale folding screens (measuring approx. 1.50 x 7.00 m), which are going on public display for the first time in this special exhibition. These screens are part of a new acquisition of artworks from the private collection of the well-known, Berlin-born collector Klaus F. Naumann, which the Stiftung Preussischer Kulturbesitz managed to acquire for the Museum für Asiatische Kunst in 2014 with generous support from the Ernst von Siemens Art Foundation and the Kulturstiftung der Länder (Germany's equivalent of the Arts Council) and which are now being premiered in Berlin.
