Join Nan Rae as she gives a talk on the journey of discovering the ‘Gentlemen Scholars’ or ‘Literati’ of ancient China and their connection to the Abstract Expressionists of the West. We discover qualities in their character that led to the creation of some of the most profound artwork known to man. Understanding their “Living Ideas” brings clarity to the understanding of these paintings of ‘mind and spirit’ and how to connect to them emotionally.
