Splendors of the Southern Branch of the National Palace Museum.
The long-expected Southern Branch of the National Palace Museum: Asian Art and Culture Museum finally launches a soft opening on December 28, 2015, fulfilling the promise that the government had made to the public, in particular to the people in southern Taiwan. From its inception to fruition, the fifteen-year long Southern Branch project underwent the administrations of the two presidents of the Republic of China, Chen Shui-bian and Ma Ying-jeou, as well as the leadership of five consecutive directors: Tu Cheng-sheng, Shih Shou- chien, Lin Mun-lee, Chou Kung-shin, and Fung Ming-chu.Table of contents:
