It is a great honor for Asianart.com to host a selection of images and
captions from the exhibition Sacred Visions. We would like to thank the Metropolitan Museum and the curators of the exhibition, Steven Kossak and
Jane Casey Singer, for their generous permission to use their caption texts and the material from the Metropolitan Museum collection. We are also
grateful to the many private collectors who consented to have their paintings reproduced on-line as well.
The fact that many of the paintings in this epochal show are not seen in
these pages does not mean that Asianart.com will not attempt to show these as well in the future. We are in the process of contacting other lenders in
pursuit of permission to enlarge this sampling still further. We expect to update this exhibition in the near future.
We urge visitors to turn to the excellent catalogue for the further text
entries by the curators and the entire corpus of more than 60 paintings.
