Sunday October 16

Selected time

The horse is one of the oldest and most interesting painting subjects in China. From the ancient Zhou dynasty (ca. 1045–771 BC) to the Qing dynasty (1644-1911), the horse, which played an important role in shaping the sociopolitical world of China, has formed an engaging symbolic language. In this program, Dr. Sung will explore the evolution of Chinese horse painting in both its symbolic and its stylistic aspects throughout Chinese history. This lecture will also include many of her recent research findings and decode the symbolic language of Chinese horse painting to reveal rich information about Chinese history and culture.
