Video Release—Interpreting Chinese Landscape Paintings

Video Release—Interpreting Chinese Landscape Paintings

Thursday, October 15, 2020 at 3:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

The subject of landscape painting seems clear: images of scenic, natural vistas laid out before the viewer. Throughout China's long history of such works, however, landscape paintings were rarely about a specific location, and typically not about the land at all. The AMAM presents a short video, created by Kevin R.E. Greenwood, Joan L. Danforth Curator of Asian Art, featuring works from the Allen's collection and others, which will highlight some of the many ways Chinese landscape paintings can be understood.

Join the Facebook event, where the video will be posted. Contact the Education Department at 440-775-8671 with any questions.

Future events in our Allen Online series will continue throughout the year on the first and third Thursdays of each month.

Presented with support from a Freeman Asian Arts & Culture Initiative grant from the Freeman Foundation.
