Join Sarah Handler, an authority on Chinese furniture and architecture in relation to the other arts, for an exploration of the elegant interiors and furnishings represented in meiren paintings. Among other topics, she discusses the bizarrely shaped gnarled-wood seats, tables, and other furnishings that express aspects of the Chinese aesthetic imagination that have persisted for more than two thousand years. Handler’s publications include Austere Luminosity of Chinese Classical Furniture and Ming Furniture in the Light of Chinese Architecture.
