This month is dedicated to one of the largest and most ancient cultures. This playlist is but a modest attempt to present the incredible variety of Chinese culture, spanning from the epoch of dynasties to contemporary art. We start and end with a contemporary artist who brings an unexpected “twist” to a very traditional style of landscape painting. We follow with examples of the art of calligraphy, historical illustrations and portraiture, contemporary photography and painting, including famous Chinese vases and their depiction in a painting by Whistler. The latter is only a small glimpse at how Chinese art has fascinated and influenced western artists.
