The general catalogue of the important Chinese Art Exhibition held in London 1935-36. The exhibition was a remarkable event which presented incomparable Chinese art pieces, and attracted unprecedented crowds breaking all records for attendance. It was the first time in history that such a large amount of Chinese objects had been on loan to a foreign country, and Western scholars have claimed that this exhibition "inaugurated the modern era of Chinese art historical studies in Europe" (Elliott and Shambaugh, The Odyssey of China's Imperial Art Treasures, Seattle 2005: 83f).
