Move Closer: Looking at Chinese Painting at the Denver Art Museum
What does it mean when a Chinese painting copies an earlier dynastic style? Is it an act of nostalgia, respect or a creative devolution?
Art historian and critic Kealey Boyd will discuss the shared visual thinking of ancient Chinese calligraphy with Song and Yuan painting.
Participants will gain a better understanding of compositional choices and painting techniques that influenced artists for centuries and became transnational.
Doors open at 2 pm
Members $18, nonmembers $23
