Ten Bamboo Studio Manual of Calligraphy and Painting

5:53

June Li, co-curator of the exhibition Gardens, Art, and Commerce in Chinese Woodblock Prints, explains how the “Ten Bamboo Studio Manual of Calligraphy and Painting” (circa 1633–1703) directly relates to founder Henry E. Huntington’s own scholarly mission to collect art, books, and plants. The Huntington’s rare edition of the “Ten Bamboo Studio Manual” is on public view for the first time in the exhibition “Gardens, Art, and Commerce in Chinese Woodblock Prints.” This international loan exhibition unites several interests at The Huntington, home of one of the most extensive collections of early printed books in the nation, various collections of prints by European and American artists, and one of the largest Chinese scholar’s gardens outside of China.
