This catalog highlights SCMA’s Asian collection, which began more than 100 years ago, when noted collector Charles Lang Freer made gifts of the first Asian artworks to Smith College. The collection of Asian art that has taken shape since reflects not only the evolving aspirations for Smith’s museum, but also the engagement of the College and its alumnae and friends with Asia’s diverse cultures and histories.

The exhibition associated with this catalog included 120 works from ancient to contemporary. The catalog features 59 works and is divided into regions including China, Japan, South Asia and the Himalayas. There is an introduction by SCMA Director and Louise Ines Doyle '34 Chief Curator Jessica Nicoll and an essay by Dr. Fan Zhang, the Freeman/McPherson Curatorial and Teaching Post-Doctoral Fellow in East Asian Art at Smith College.
