About Us

The late Ming witnessed an unprecedented production of woodblock images printed for many different purposes, including illustrations for drama and games, decorations for stationary paper or ink making, as well as pictorial works for the market. This symposium, organized in conjunction with the exhibition “Gardens, Art, and Commerce in ChineseWoodblock Prints,” on view at The Huntington from Sept. 17, 2016 to Jan. 9, 2017, will explore the relationship and interaction between image and text in woodblock prints during the late Ming and Qing periods. The symposium was held at The Huntington on Nov. 12, 2016.
