This event has now passed.
American antique collector Stephan Loewentheil owns the largest private collection of Chinese historical photographs outside of China, but this exhibition sees some of the finest return to China, to be exhibited for the first time in Beijing. 120 rare early photographs of the nation will be on show, featuring masterpieces captured in the nineteenth century by both Chinese and international photographers, among them acknowledged masters of the period, as well as unexpected gems by anonymous photographers and lesser-known figures. Highlights include the earliest photographs of Beijing, majestic landscapes from further afield and portraits from the late Qing dynasty.
For more information and a preview of some of the photographs, see the Tsinghua University Art Museum site.
