This symposium, organized in conjunction with the exhibition “Gardens, Art, and Commerce in Chinese Woodblock Prints,” on view at the Huntington from Sept. 17, 2016 to Jan. 9, 2017, will explore the relationship and interaction between image and text in woodblock prints during the late Ming and Qing periods.
