Asian Art

From the first acquisitions of Asian art by John and Mable Ringling in 1926, the Ringling Museum’s Asian art collection has been expanding. Today it encompasses diverse objects from a broad range of Asian cultures. These include stone Buddhist sculpture from Gandhara, a crossroads of the ancient world’s Silk Road; Chinese ceramics from all periods of China’s history; Japanese woodblock prints, both traditional ukiyo-e as well as twentieth century prints; Vietnamese, Thai and Korean ceramics; and objects representing Turkomen tribes and various periods in Indian culture
