The Museum of Applied Art and Design presents the first series of exhibitions of Eastern art, «The Silk Road. Old Chinese Art». For the first time in the museum’s history, visitors are presented with almost 100 exhibits, from the period of the dynasty of the Eastern Zhou (1046–771 BC) to the Ming dynasty (1368–1644), revealing the interaction between Eastern and Western cultures in the region where the Silk Road started.

Yet probably the most important aspect of this exhibition would be, of course, the artist’s own specially selected paintings sent to Latvia from India in 1937.
