Song Dynasty Figures of Longing and Desire : Gender and Interiority in Chinese Painting and Poetry - image 1 of 1

About this item

What kinds of functions could Song dynasty paintings of women in love serve, asks Blanchard, why were themes of interiority so resonant, and which groups constituted their intended viewers. She focuses on works of art that are not only representative of the various ways painting can express interiority, but are also linked to specific individuals who were artists, patrons, collectors, or viewers in order to provide a better understanding of their historical context. She covers gendered subjectivity and representing interiority, political interpretations of desire, male audience and authorship: projecting desire and longing onto the female figure, and the female audience: modeling idealized femininity.
