Hao Sheng on 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 Hao Sheng, Wu Tung Curator of Chinese Art, describes how Qiu masterfully executes age-old Chinese brush painting principles while maintaining an individual, artistic spirit.
