In honor of the 40th anniversary of normalization of Japan-China ties in 2012, Chinese authorities are loaning some of their country's most cherished artworks to the Tokyo National Museum for a special exhibition from Jan. 2 through Feb. 19.

Many of these national treasures of paintings and calligraphic works have never left China because of their priceless significance to Chinese art.
Nobuyuki Matsumoto, director of curatorial planning at the Tokyo National Museum, said the exhibition is unprecedented for the display of 41 artworks from the Song Dynasty (960-1279) and the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368) from the collection of the Palace Museum in Beijing.

"There were a number of shows on works on loan from the Palace Museum, but only a couple of works were shown from the Song and Yuan dynasties on each occasion," Matsumoto said.
Thirty-nine of them will be shown for the first time in Japan.
