BROWSE asian COLLECTION
The museum holds a small collection of traditional Asian art. In 1973, Col. and Mrs. Van R. White donated a group of Ming and Qing Dynasty jades and porcelains, which forms the core of the Asian collection. Twelve Japanese wood block prints are from the Edo period by well-known artists such as Utamaro, Hiroshige and Hokusai, among others. The collection includes a 19th-century Indian miniature and several Arabic illustrated manuscript pages. Recently, the museum has acquired works by contemporary Chinese artists, including Hong Lei and Zhang Dali.
