Summer 2014
Parallels and Convergences

This workshop was designed to help develop concepts in preparation for a potential exhibition at the Freer and Sackler Galleries of painting at the Qing-Manchu court during the presence there of European Jesuit artists. The workshop focused on the issue of perspective as used in Chinese painting before, during, and after this period, and on what reception and lasting impact (if any) the Jesuit presence had among painters in China.
