The Forbidden City

Selection 01

At the heart of Beijing lies China’s Imperial Palace (from the Ming to the Qing Dynasties), now known as the The Forbidden City; home to The Palace Museum. Of particular interest were the screens between courtyards; the layering of the various patterns and materials; colour, depth, and scale in light time and place. I spent many many days discovering new parts to the complex and its extensive collections.

Overwhelming… and only just a glimpse!!!!
