The collection of the National Palace Museum mainly deals with art and artifacts of Chinese heritage. Many of the works in the collection are masterpieces, leading the Museum to become widely known as a treasure trove of Chinese culture.

Since its opening in Taipei, the National Palace Museum has never ceased in expanding the scope of its collection. A set of guidelines was drawn in 1969 to facilitate making acquisitions with budgetary funds and to encourage private donations and entrustments.

Spotlight on National Treasures

Spotlight on National Treasures

31. October 2020 - 31. January 2021

The works of painting and calligraphy in the National Palace Museum collection are categorized into three levels based on their artistic and other merits. Starting with the most important, these works are "National Treasures," "Significant Historic Artifacts (Significant Antiquities)," and "General Historic Artifacts (General Antiquities)." Since 2008, the Review Committee for Historic Artifacts at the Council for Cultural Affairs (predecessor of the Ministry of Culture) has worked in conjunction with the painting and calligraphy exhibitions at the National Palace Museum to conduct relevant inspections and written reports of the display items. Confirming the works ranked as "National Treasures" and "Significant Historic Artifacts," the results are thereafter made public. Consequently, the number of "National Treasures" has grown considerably over the years, the ones at the National Palace Museum far surpassing those at other institutions in Taiwan.

 To present these findings and to promote further knowledge about the ranking of artworks at the National Palace Museum, Gallery 107 at its Main Building in Taipei is being set aside for special exhibitions of "Spotlight on National Treasures." In each rotation, two works of painting or calligraphy ranked as "National Treasures" are placed on display for approximately three months and changed at regular intervals. Should a work belong to the Museum category for "restricted display," however, the viewing period is limited to no more than 42 days.

 All of these "national treasures" placed on display are exceptionally important works in the history of Chinese art. The goal of this spotlight exhibit on famous artworks is to promote a better understanding of painting and calligraphy with "National Treasure" status for visitors. In doing so, it hopefully reinforces the importance of conserving cultural heritage for the appreciation by future generations.

The Beigou Legacy: The National Palace Museum's Early Years in Taiwan

The Beigou Legacy: The National Palace Museum's Early Years in Taiwan

09. October 2020 - 07. March 2021

In the winter of 1948, as the Chinese Civil War between the Nationalists and Communists intensified, the Palace Museum and the Preparatory Office of the National Central Museum were instructed to select important artifacts and artworks in Nanjing for evacuation to Taiwan. In late February 1949, the collections of the two museums arrived in three batches and were temporarily stored in the Taichung Sugar Mill warehouse. The following April, the collections were moved to the newly built storehouses in Beigou in the central Taiwanese town of Wufeng. Over the next 15 years, the two museums formed a Joint Administrative Office and took inventory of all objects shipped to Taiwan. Despite the lack of resources, the Office made every effort to catalogue the collections and to publish their findings. Later on, a small-scale gallery was erected and public exhibitions were held. In addition, the Office selected the finest pieces for a five-venue exhibition in the United States. In 1965, as part of the government plan to develop tourism and showcase the most splendid Chinese art to a wider audience, a new museum was constructed in the Taipei suburb of Waishuangxi. This site became the home of the newly reinstated National Palace Museum, which incorporated the National Central Museum.

 The Beigou period was an important transitional stage in the history of the Museum. During the Beigou years, constraints in terms of space, personnel, and funding made it difficult for the two museums to expand their operations, and activities were mostly confined to cataloguing and safeguarding artifacts. Nevertheless, the work in collection management, preservation, research, publication, and exhibition outreach laid a strong foundation for the future National Palace Museum to grow and reach new heights. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the arrival of the two institutions' treasured art objects in Beigou. The Museum has launched the exhibition to commemorate this historical event and highlight a significant period in its history. The exhibition consists of six sections: "Relocation of Important Artifacts to Taiwan," "Safeguarding and Conservation," "Taking Stock of the Collections," "Cataloguing and Publication," "Exhibitions and Outreach," and "Reinstatement of the Museum in Taipei." Featuring historical documents and photographic images from the Museum History Archives and pictorial materials provided by the descendants of those who couriered the objects to Taiwan, it is intended to offer a comprehensive review of the historical context of the Museum's early years in Taiwan.

She & Her: On Women and Their Art in Chinese History

She & Her: On Women and Their Art in Chinese History

06. October 2020 - 27. December 2020

The average ratio of males to females in the human population of the world today is roughly even, and it goes without saying that the role of women and their contribution to civilization should neither be overlooked nor underestimated. Comparatively speaking, the National Palace Museum collection features not only a wealth of art on the subject of ladies but also a number of exceptional artworks by women themselves. Unfortunately, however, traditional Chinese society was basically developed and dominated by men over thousands of years. Hence, expressions in Chinese emerged such as "men above and women below," "a man’s place is outside and a woman's at home," "a girl's beauty lies in her weakness," and "a girl's virtue is having no talent." They had a profound affect on women and led to many deep-rooted stereotypes, resulting in far too many ladies of talent being stifled and unable to fulfill their potential. Sympathy for and attention to the plight and situation of these women become all the more apparent in the works of art on and by them.

 This special exhibition features a selection of 71 fine works of art from the National Palace Museum collection arranged by period and divided into two categories: "Norms of Female Beauty" and "Ladies of Artistic Talent." The first category offers a broad chronological perspective of paintings on ladies from the Five Dynasties era down to modern times as a way to clearly outline the diverse roles of women in art and the styles of these beautiful works. The second category presents painting, calligraphy, and textile works of art by women artists themselves. Though some of them have been recorded by name in the annals of history, compared to men, they are few and far between. Nevertheless, it is not too difficult to find exquisite and stylistically unique works in brush and ink from the hands of women artists in Chinese art history, the selections in this section of the exhibit fully revealing their talent in various fields.

 In the 21st century, during this continuing age of women power, the National Palace Museum hopes this special exhibition can display not only the beauty of art but also encourage further thought on subjects related to women to form new perspectives of epochal significance for the future.

Painting Animation: Spring Dawn in the Han Palace

Painting Animation: Spring Dawn in the Han Palace

28. September 2020 - 27. December 2020

Since 2011, the National Palace Museum initiated a series of high-resolution long scroll painting animations. Using the latest technology, several high-resolution 1080 HD projectors seamlessly unfold sceneries from classical long scroll paintings on the wall. The painting animation series reproduces nine popular paintings and calligraphy , including Along the River During Qingming (Qing court artists), Spring Dawn in the Han Palace (Qiu Ying), Imitating Zhao Bosu's Latter Ode on the Red Cliff (Wen Zhengming), Syzygy of the Sun, Moon, and Five Planets(Xu Yang), Departure Herald (Anonymous), Return Clearing (Anonymous), Activities of the Twelve Lunar Months (Qing court artists), One Hundred Horses (Giuseppe Castligione), The Cold Food Observance (Su Shi), Poem in Seven-character Verse (Huang Tingjian) . Inspired by historical material related to the artworks, the animations faithfully present the true spirit of the original paintings and their most attractive parts. A fascinating feature of the long scroll painting is its ability to simultaneously manifest chronological continuity and segmentation. As a result of the unique painting scale and traditional right to left reading direction, painting compositions unfurl accordingly and emphasize horizontal relationships. Oftentimes, scenes occurring at different points in time were depicted on a single scroll.
