History of Art and Visual CultureHAVC 196G Word and Image in Chinese Culture

The Chinese tradition, from the earliest material evidence to the most recent, has persistently emphasized a close relationship between written language and pictorial image. This concern has appeared equally in artifactual and theoretical form. Its best known representation is in the association of calligraphy with painting. Course examines the evolution and meaning of that association. A knowledge of the Chinese language is not necessary. Can be taken for senior exit credit only by permission of the instructor. (Formerly course 190G.)


Enrollment restricted to junior and senior history of art and visual culture majors.
