Last spring I had the good fortune to be part of a faculty group from SUNY Oswego who went to Shanghai to visit East China Normal University. We went to explore establishing study abroad opportunities facilitated by ECNU and CAPA. During our time in Shanghai, we were treated to several cultural excursions that will be offered to our students, including a trip to the China Art Museum. There you can see the enormous and fun animated version of this national treasure by Song painter, Zhang Zeduan, that was prepared for the 2010 Expo. Thank you Patrick Siu for your informative and interesting blog posts on Chinese art and calligraphy. There are four blog entries, I only re-post one here.
If you are interested in viewing a high resolution, interactive version of the actual Song painting, check out Harvard’s version.
