Join educator Yvonne Wolf for a virtual exploration of a popular classical East Asian art motif: birds and blossoms. Colorful peony flowers and landscape paintings frequently decorate the walls of Chinese restaurants. Plum blossoms and birds are printed onto Chinese take-out boxes. The motifs of flowers and birds, animals and trees, and landscapes (mountains and water) communicate far more than their surface aesthetics. These paintings communicate prosperity and fulfillment in a highly balanced relationship.
Learn how to appreciate these works by applying the principles of yin and yang. Consider the composition and juxtaposition of yin and yang pairs, what determines fine art and folk art, and what makes one authentic compared to another with similar thematic composition.
