A Chinese Scholar in His Studio 16:00 28th Mar / The Bookworm – Beijing

The studio was a Chinese scholar’s retreat, a perfect private space for reading, writing, painting, and entertaining friends. The fine furniture and treasured desk utensils were functional and often superb works of art, as historian Sarah Handler will show. She is the author of Austere Luminosity of Chinese Classical Furniture and Ming Furniture in the Light of Chinese Architecture, currently being considered for publication in Chinese. She also edited and translated from the Chinese Wang Shixiang’s Classic Chinese Furniture: Ming and Early Qing Dynasties. Moderated by Neil Schmida specialist in medieval Chinese literature and Dunhuang Studies.
