Historic China-Taiwan exhibition opens in Taipei

Breaking News

The three-month exhibition at Taiwan's National Palace Museum features 37 items borrowed from Beijing - the first time any artwork from the centuries-old Chinese emperors' collection has been loaned to Taiwan.

These items - including paintings, lacquer boxes and porcelain which belonged to the 18th Century Qing Dynasty Emperor Yongzheng - are being displayed with some 200 exhibits from Taiwan's collection.

The exhibition is particularly significant because of the historic tensions between Taiwan and China over their shared history.
