In an extraordinary international exhibition, almost 200 items from the enormous collection of the Palace Museum in Beijing have traveled to America. Empresses of China's Forbidden City, now at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, features many, many pieces never before seen in public. They reflect recent research on five themes in the lives of hitherto little-known Qing Dynasty empresses: imperial weddings, motherhood, lifestyle, religion, and political influence. Often referred to as "the silence" that has surrounded royal empresses (seen but not heard), extensive searches in court archives and historical accounts have brought to light their strong influences in the arts, religion, and court politics of their times.
