Art Museum exhibition on "Seeing Double: Copies and Copying in the Arts of China"
Posted March 16, 2001; 01:56 p.m.
An overview of the way Chinese artists have traditionally copied, imitated, and alluded to earlier works in the technical production and aesthetic appreciation of art is the focus of the exhibition "Seeing Double: Copies and Copying in the Arts of China," on view through July 1 in the Asian galleries of The Princeton University Art Museum.
"Copying is the process underlying the cultural emphasis and artistic value placed on the authority of the past in the arts of China," writes Cary Y. Liu, associate curator of Asian art, in his introduction to the exhibition.
