Streams and Mountains without End: Landscape Traditions of China

The Met Fifth Avenue
1000 Fifth Avenue,
New York, New York, USA
Aug 26, 2017 To Jan 06, 2019


Detail: Showcasing more than 120 Chinese landscape paintings in three rotations, the exhibition will offer gateways into the tradition, drawing out distinctions between types of landscape that may not be obvious at first glance. What initially appears to be a simple mountain dwelling, for example, is revealed to be the villa of the painter's friend, which encodes a wish for his happy retirement; what seems at first to be a simple study in dry brushwork turns out to be an homage to an old master, a sign of reverence for what had come before.
