The prominence of artists’ inscriptions on Chinese paintings is a well-known feature. But what purposes do they serve, and how do they contribute to the viewer’s experience of the art work? Do they somehow serve to make Chinese painting distinct from that in the European traditions? This talk considers artists’ inscriptions on Chinese paintings from the Ming-Qing period, and examines how they alter guide and affect our understanding of the painted images. Particular attention is given to poetic inscriptions, especially those that reproduce or draw upon poetry from earlier centuries. What did Ming-Qing painters seek to accomplish by adding lines of Tang or earlier poetry to their paintings? This talk will consider the interplay of text and image in exquisite paintings of the period.
