With more than thirteen thousand objects dating from Neolithic times (ca. 7000–ca. 2000 BCE) to the present, the Freer and Sackler boast among the finest museum collections of Chinese art. In addition to containing numerous masterworks, the collections powerfully reflect all major dynastic periods and materials of artistic production. Uncommon concentrations of special categories include artifacts acquired with the Singer collection, imperial and trade ceramics, lacquer, traditional paintings, portraits, and calligraphy. And our remarkable ancient jades and bronzes are among the greatest treasures of Chinese art outside China.
An annotated bibliography may combine elements of all the types. In fact, most of them fall into this category: a little summarizing and describing, a little evaluation.
A picture caption on Page 19 this weekend with the continuation of a cover article about the 10 greatest classical composers misspells the given name of Verdi. He was Giuseppe Verdi, not Guiseppe.
