Finding Consolation in the Present By Seeking the Past: Chinese Artists’ Dialogues with Ancient Masters

The Chinese art of ink painting is an ancient and continuously practiced tradition transmitted and learned in part through the study of the works of past masters.  Studying the styles of the greatest artists of the past was seen as the fundamental basis for learning the art of painting in China until the twentieth century. This lecture will examine the influence of this long tradition on later artists as they sought to balance reverence for the art of old masters with their own requirements for artistic expression. 

Kathleen M. Ryor, professor of art history, Carleton College, 7:30 pm Weitz 236 followed by Opening Reception in the museum and Weitz Commons, with music by Gao Hong and the Carleton Chinese Music Ensemble.
