Song and Yuan Dynasty Painting and Calligraphy 宋元書畫

Song and Yuan Dynasty Painting and Calligraphy 宋元書畫.

Based on the holdings in the Freer Gallery of Art, this resource consists of 85 extraordinary artworks from the Song and Yuan Dynasties (10th-14th century) – 82 paintings and 3 independent works of calligraphy. For the first time, most of the 85 works are being thoroughly published even though many of them have assumed near-iconic status in Western studies of Chinese brushwork. “This pioneering project enables web users around the globe to study these artworks in their entirety and, through the comprehensive documentation of all associated texts and accessories, gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for one of the world’s great artistic traditions.” (Smithsonian Institution)
