Exhibition catalogue From the Lands of Asia. The Sam and Myrna Myers Collection, presented at the Montreal Museum of Archaeology and History (November 17, 2016 - March 19, 2017).
This exhibition features some 400 pieces selected from among the finest objects in a collection of 5,000 works of Asian art amassed over 50 years by an American couple living in Paris.
A journey in time punctuated by surprising encouters in contrasting eras: Chinese antiquity, the Buddhist world, the maritime routes across the China Sea in the period of the great discoveries, the costumes and customs of the poeples of Asia at the dawn of modern times.
An extraordinary occasion to grasp these fascinating faraway worlds.
This publication was realized by the collector and only an English version exists.
