Hao Sheng on Li Jin

Li Jin responded to the Northern Qi scholars collating classic texts (Northern Song dynasty, 11th century) with his playful paintings Reminiscence to Antiquity I–VII, which included two long handscrolls and seven narrow hanging scrolls. Watch as Hao Sheng, Wu Tung Curator of Chinese Art, explains Li’s choice of ancient texts as his inspiration and reveals the artist’s deep appreciation for both the Museum and the city of Boston.
