The Kyoto National Museum International Symposium 2012
From private letters to prayers for national peace, shinkan (literally 妬mperial writings), or the calligraphy of emperors, covers a rich body of works. Their refinement, style, and content are emblematic of monarchs, making shinkan the 徒ings of calligraphy.Chinese calligraphy of the Tang dynasty and Chan (J., Zen) Buddhism of the Song and Yuan dynasties have been greatly influential in the stylistic developments of the distinctive handwritings of the Japanese emperors.
With this in mind, this year痴 international symposium examines the calligraphic works by the emperors of China and Japan. Prominent scholars from Beijing, Taipei, and Japan will participate in the discussion from various perspectives.
The Kyoto National Museum International Symposium 2012 had ended.
