Telling Images of China is an exhibition of early modern and modern paintings from one of the world's finest collections of Chinese art - the Shanghai Museum. The thirty-eight figural works were selected by a team of curators, including Professor Shan Guolin and Mr Ling Lizhong of the Shanghai Museum, and Dr Shane McCausland of the Chester Beatty Library, Dublin. They include scrolls and albums by artists - both pre-eminent and obscure - active in the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties, and the twentieth century.
