Julia M. White, Senior Curator for Asian Art at the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, offers recent research on the work of 17th-century Chinese painter Chen Hongshou (1599–1652), who is best known for his enigmatic paintings of personages from the distant past. This examination explores the artist’s state of mind and social conditions during a turbulent time in history, the disintegration of the Ming dynasty.
