Lecture: Rocks As Art—A Chinese Tradition with Jan Stuart, PhD

When: Tue., Jan. 14, 6:30-7:30 p.m. 2020

In late imperial China, carefully selected rocks were admired on a par with the finest man-made arts, including painting, calligraphy and porcelain. This lecture takes as its subject the tradition of rocks as art, examining stones - large and small - as well as other types of artworks that connect to China's deep fascination with geological specimens.
