Sixteen Chinese landscape paintings from the mid-17th to mid-18th century reflect the century long development in four major art centers after the Manchus took over China in 1644. These works -- some of which have rarely been shown before -- are arranged in four geographical regions: the lower Yangzi River valley, Mount Huang, Nanjing, and Yangzhou.
