Liu Dan, Scholar's Rock, 1993, Harvard Art Museums/Arthur M. Sackler Museum.

With this reinstallation, the Arthur M. Sackler Museum closed two galleries of Asian art, the first publicly visible step in the Harvard Art Museum’s renovation project. The remaining second-floor Asian gallery features a selection of Chinese ceramics from the Tang (618–907) through Qing (1644–1911) dynasties and four recently acquired contemporary Chinese ink paintings. These works illuminate the various avenues explored by four artists who strove to embrace modernism within the framework of the great Chinese ink painting tradition. Organized by Robert D. Mowry, Alan J. Dworsky Curator of Chinese Art, Arthur M. Sackler Museum.
