Qiu Ting

Qiu Ting pays homage to Zhao Lingrang’s Whiling Away the Summer by a Lakeside Retreat (Northern Song dynasty, 1100), a scholarly work from the Museum’s collection that the artist investigated in his landscape Visit to the Eight Great Sites.

Watch as Qiu explains what makes Whiling Away the Summer one of his favorite works and reveals aspects of his creative consciousness when he paints.
