The National Palace Museum in Taipei is one of the three major museums in the world, along with the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg and the Louvre in Paris. This museum houses the treasures of successive Chinese dynasties. Therefore, the objects exhibited here are on a slightly different track. While the Louvre and the Hermitage exhibit the art developed in Western civilization, the National Palace Museum exhibits the art of Chinese civilization.

Western art is often associated with oil paintings, but there are no oil paintings in this museum. Instead, there are many hanging scrolls in the museum's collection. As a Japanese, I am more familiar with hanging scrolls than with oil paintings, but I am not in the habit of enjoying them. When I came to the front of the scrolls, a woman was looking at them intently. She seemed to be overwhelmed by the beauty of the scroll. But unfortunately, I was not educated enough to appreciate the scrolls.
