When the Japanese were marching on the Chinese capitol in 1931, Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek ordered the Palace Museum in the Forbidden City in Beijing to ship its art collection, painstakingly assembled by the Emperor Qianlong during the 1700s, and send it on an epic journey south to the city of Nanjing. When the Chinese nationalists were fending off defeat by their communist adversaries near the end of the Chinese Civil War, as much of the collection as possible (2,972 crates, which consisted of the best of the collection) was shipped to Taiwan, where it remains in the National Palace Museum to this day. Were its exhibits to be changed every 6 months, it would take 30 years to show the complete collection! Astoundingly beautiful and ancient pen and ink drawings, paintings, sculpture, pottery and many more arts and handiworks provide a dazzling spectacle to help document the story of the collection's rescue, its curators and devotees who carry on its artistic traditions, and the significance and meaning of the artifacts.

The National Palace Museum is located in Taipei, Taiwan, and has a permanent collection of nearly 700,000 pieces of ancient Chinese imperial artifacts and artworks, making it one of the largest of its type in the world. The collection encompasses 8,000 years of history of Chinese art from the Neolithic age to the modern. Most of the collection are high quality pieces collected by China's emperors. The National Palace Museum shares its roots with the Palace Museum in the Forbidden City, whose extensive collection of artwork and artifacts were built upon the imperial collections of the Ming and Qing dynasties.
