IMPERIAL APARTMENTS OF QIANLONG

14 September to 14 February

A rare glimpse at the remarkable colours and pageantry of one of China’s most significant rulers as the Acropolis Museum displays for the first time the personal items and artworks of the Qianlong Emperor, the sixth emperor of the Manchu-led Qing dynasty (1711-1799). To lay eyes on this intriguing collection, one would usually have to travel to the Palace Museum in the Forbidden City in Beijing. The display comprises 154 historical artifacts including ceremonial robes, furniture and personal objects from the reformist Emperor’s private apartments in the Palace of Many Splendours. Emperor Qianlong made his mark by nurturing the arts, literature and well-being of his citizens, and under his rule China doubled in size and population. He remained on the throne for sixty years (1736-1795).
