Selected Treasures from the Scholar's Studio

In early China the Scholar's Studio provided a haven for contemplation away from the cares of the world.  It was a world  in which the scholar retreated to contemplate curiosities and fantastic works of art that stimulated the mind. We are pleased to highlight superlative works of art from our collection which exemplify the scholar's ideal.
