ARTH 32.22 The Japanese Painting Tradition

This course provides a comprehensive introduction to the Japanese painting tradition. Surveying a broad range of themes, formats, and styles and exploring the relationship between indigenous sensibilities and the traditions Japanese artists borrowed from continental Asia and the West, it defines the unique aesthetic experience offered by Japanese sacred and secular painting. Its focus on patronage and studio practice emphasizes the social, political, and cultural processes that underscored important developments in the painting tradition.



The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
