Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has become a premier sponsors of The Emperors Private Paradise: Treasures from the Forbidden City, a landmark U.S. exhibition organized by the Peabody Essex Museum in partnership with the Palace Museum, Beijing, and in cooperation with World Monuments Fund (WMF).

Never before seen by the public, the artistic treasures from the private retreat of the celebrated Qianlong Emperor (r.1736-1796) will be revealed for the first time at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts in September 2010. The Emperors Private Paradise will travel to The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Milwaukee Art Museum in 2011.

Meticulously restored from the Qianlong Garden complex deep within the Forbidden City, the 90 objects of ceremony and leisure murals, paintings, wall coverings, furniture, architectural elements, jades and cloisonn will unveil the contemplative life and refined vision of one of historys most influential figures. An 18th-century compound in a hidden quadrant of the immense imperial complex, the Qianlong Garden (also known as the Tranquility and Longevity Palace Garden), is part of a decade-long, multimillion-dollar conservation initiative undertaken by World Monuments Fund in partnership with the Palace Museum, Beijing.

We are delighted to have the generous support of Mandarin Oriental in the presentation of The Emperors Private Paradise. Thanks to the participation of our sponsor organizations, and the extraordinary collaboration between PEM, the Palace Museum and WMF, American museum-goers have an exciting opportunity to see the contents of this extraordinary Forbidden City complex, which have never been publicly accessible before, said Dan Monroe, Executive Director and CEO of the Peabody Essex Museum.

The Emperors Private Paradise: Treasures from the Forbidden City will be on view at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts from 14 September 2010 to 9 January 2011.
