In Pearls from the Far East,

the museum presents a selection of about forty highlights from the collection of Chinese art. Although the Museum is best known for its large collection of modern art, less well-known is that the museum’s founder Helene Kröller-Müller also had a passion for Chinese art, from blanc de Chine porcelain to works from early dynasties, such as the Tang (610-907) and Song (960-1279).
