For the first time ever, this extraordinary collection of the Shanghai Museum will be demonstrated in the Moscow Kremlin Museums. The exhibition is dedicated to the Ming dynasty epoch (1368–1644), one of the most vivid pages in the rich heritage of China. Experts call that period the 'extension of knowledge', as interest in art, literature and music, intimate knowledge of philosophical and historical tractates became a real cult. This very body of knowledge and interests is known as “knowledge” in China. The display is aimed at familiarizing Russian viewers with a genuine cultural phenomenon – the profound intellectual world of Medieval China.
