Sublime Views: Qing Dynasty Paintings and the Ink Painting Tradition

Dr. Claudia Brown, Professor of Asian Art at Arizona State University, will discuss subtleties and nuances of the Chinese ink painting tradition based on works currently on view in the Arts of Asia Galleries. Scholar-artists of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) pursued artistic effects inspired by China’s long tradition of painting. Their work, seen against the background of momentous and tumultuous events, suggests ways in which textures and brushstrokes could project the landscape of an ideal world.
