Art of Dissidents and Recluses: Chinese Literati Painting and Calligraphy
ARHA 282
Fall 2016
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: CEAS 277

During the mid-eleventh century, a group of Chinese dissidents and recluses, known for their independent views on political and social issues, began to explore new forms of artistic expression. The results of their effort challenged the status quo in Chinese art and eventually developed into a unique tradition, known as literati art. The tradition left a strong imprint in Chinese culture today and its impact can also be felt throughout East Asia, especially Korea and Japan. This course examines this artistic tradition and its legacy in today's China and East Asia.
