 “This exhibition is the first to explore the role of empresses in shaping China’s last dynasty – the Qing dynasty – from 1644 to 1912. Nearly 200 spectacular objects from the Palace Museum tell the little-known stories of how imperial women influenced court politics, art and religion.” https://www.pem.org/
