In the 25 years since the opening of the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, the museum's collections have grown substantially since Dr. Sackler's generous inaugural gift. This exhibition displays a selection of gifts made by subsequent benefactors, including Chinese paintings and such objects as scholar's rocks; court robes; kingfisher feather jewelry; and seals of various sizes, materials, and periods.
