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.
Kealey Boyd is an art historian, writer and museum educator. She is a regular contributor to Hyperallergic and has published art criticism with College Art Association (CAA Reviews) and Artillery Magazine. She is also a lecturer in Art History at Metropolitan State University of Denver, specializing in dynastic Chinese painting.
