Authors: Dr. Jonathan Chaves
The harmonious integration of painting, poetry, and calligraphy has been an accomplishment of Chinese art since the literati painters of the Song dynasty. This idea of painting and poetry as “sister arts” is explored in works by various artists from Wang Wei of the Tang dynasty, considered China’s first poet-painter, to a Portuguese poet living in Macao. This study encompasses theory, imagery, music, and comparative modern expressions.
