The special exposition of the 40th Russian Antiquarian Salon is dedicated to the Chinese art.
The exhibition Silk Way in Time consists of two parts. The first one -  Masterpieces of the Chinese Art from Private Collections - presents works of the 17th century: a bell, a jade bull sculpture and a porcelain vase, as well as antiques of porcelain, nephrite, wood and filigree enamel of the 18th-19th centuries.
The second part displays the Chinese nephrite from Bronislav Vinogrodsky's collection.
"The exposition gives a picture of the variety of themes in greenstone art works, including auspicious animals and ritual objects, amulets and feng shui objects, interior design and luxury items, and traces the development of stone-carving over two and a half thousand years", - the curators point out.
