For the first time in decades, rarely seen textile masterworks from China, India, Japan, Iran, and Turkey in the collection of The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art are now on view in an extraordinary exhibition. Made with fine materials, exemplary techniques, and superb artistry, these Asian luxury textiles and costumes were prized objects, both domestically and through global trade. Three distinguished presenters from The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art will share highlights from this exhibition, including classical Persian carpets and velvets, exquisite Kashmir shawls, important Chinese court robes, sumptuous furnishings, Japanese theatre costumes, and Meiji-era tapestries.
