About this Class:
Learn about the ways that the subject of nature has been treated in Chinese and Japanese painting traditions, and how they can illuminate new social, philosophical, and spiritual ideas, prominent in the times and places from which they came. Class includes presentations, discussions and museum visits to consider the expression of landscape through Chinese movements like Song-dynasty ink painting, Yuan and Ming literati painting, Qing individualism and 20th-century experiments, as well as Japanese Zen painting, the decorative translation thereof, and ukiyo-e prints.
This class was previously taught as part of a larger art history course in Fall 2016.
