Negative Space and Transcendence in Landscape Paintings and Poetry: From Wang Wei (701–761) to Zhao Mengfu (1254–1322) = 山水詩與畫中的空 : 以王維和趙孟頫為例

Jao Tsung-I Academy of Sinology (November 9, 2022)

SEMINAR SERIES : Online Sinology Fortnightly (July to December, 2022)

LENGTH : 86 min.
ACCESS : Open to all
SUMMARY : I read Wang Wei’s (王維 699–759) poetry and paintings about Wangchuan Villa to show how his landscape poetry, which was informed by his painting experience and Buddhist practice, has shaped the way negative space and the idea of “emptiness” are presented and understood. I will also study two of Zhao Mengfu’s (趙孟頫, 1254–1322) paintings to help illustrate the different modes of representing clouds and water and to argue that Chinese landscape painters learned from landscape poetry the way to achieve transcendental enlightenment in negative space.

本講座通過解讀王維的輞川詩集和畫作來理解詩人如何因為其繪畫實踐和佛學修養的影響,在山水詩中表達「空」的概念。進而與趙孟頫的「鵲華秋色圖」和「吳興清遠圖」進行比較,來分析山水畫表現雲和水的不同方式,以揭示山水詩的表達模式對山水畫意境呈現的借鑒和啟發。  [Go to the full record in the library's catalogue]
