Power and Virtue: The Horse in Chinese Art
Robert E. Harrist, Jr.
The horse is a beloved subject and a profoundly meaningful image in Chinese visual culture. It is variously associated with non-Chinese, imperial power, and Confucian virtues. This text explores the contexts in which this noble animal figures prominently, from tomb sculpture to scholar painting, over a period of two thousand years. In particular, it examines the symbolic and rhetorical traditions of horse painting in Chinese art.
