Taiwan Art @ Taiwan National Palace Museum (國立故宮博物院)
Shilin District, Taipei City, Taiwan  - November 2017
The National Palace Museum, located in Taipei and Taibao, Taiwan, has a permanent collection of nearly 700,000 pieces of ancient Chinese imperial artifacts and artworks, making it one of the largest of its type in the world. The collection encompasses 8,000 years of history of Chinese art from the Neolithic age to the modern. Most of the collection are high quality pieces collected by China's emperors. The National Palace Museum shares its roots with the Palace Museum in the Forbidden City, whose extensive collection of artwork and artifacts were built upon the imperial collections of the Ming and Qing dynasties.
During our cycling tour of Taiwan, we had the opportunity to visit the main museum in Taipei and appreciate the many artwork there, artwork gave us glimpses of the country's history and the different art style that developed through the ages.
Due to photography angle some of the photos have been truncated and these photos here only gives a representation of what I saw really saw; nothing beats going there to see them for yourselves. The artwork are presented here according to the galleries they were displayed in.
Enjoy! 



MORE GALLERIES COMING SOON...
STAY TUNED!
