The exhibit "The Emperor's Private Paradise: Treasures from the Forbidden City" at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts displays exquisite art objects, furnishings, screens and wall hangings from the Qianlong Garden Complex of the Forbidden City in China. Since 1924, the doors had been closed on this secluded compound of pavilions and gardens deep within the palace.
