Su Shi (1037-1101) was a poet, philosopher, civil servant, gourmand & artist. In recognition of the upcoming ground-breaking sale of Su Shi’s Wood and Rock, Christie's Education is delighted to host a symposium exploring the literati master's artistic achievements, as well as his cultural and literary legacy in Chinese history.
From lectures to conversations with specialists, we will dissect the many facets of this ingenious man, to uncover and understand the man behind the artistry. We will end the day with a viewing session of the reproduction of the painting led by a senior Chinese painting specialist.
