Join AWNY for an illuminating and exhilarating Zoom webinar about China’s rich and sophisticated traditional paintings. Artist Arnold Chang (Zhang Hong) demonstrates the distinctive brushwork and painting techniques that comprise this ancient art form. Willow Hai of China Institute and Joseph Scheier-Dolberg of the Metropolitan Museum of Art will preview and spark our interest in two extraordinary Chinese classical paintings by noted masters Bada Shanren and Wang Yuanqi, respectively, which you can see in New York in March. Accomplished collector Dr. Matthew Edlund will provide insights into his experiences acquiring Chinese paintings over many years. AWNY’s Liz Hammer will moderate the program.
