AHY 3306 - Chinese Painting and Calligraphy

Credits: 4.0
Beginning with the earliest known landscape painting in China, this course will address the philosophical and religious background (Daoism, Buddhism, and Confucianism) and the Principles of Painting as first expressed by Xie He in his preface to the “Ancient Painters Classical Record,” which forms the basis for later painting theory. We will study landscape painting from the Six Dynasties through the Qing Dynasties with emphasis on the relationships between painting, poetry, and calligraphy, and part of the course will be devoted to “hands on” experiments with brushes, ink, and paper. The course will also include a field trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York to study the collection of Chinese painting and calligraphy.
