The theme for the exhibition was inspired by the Chinese custom of combining poetry with painting, and fan paintings in particular, from as early as the 4th century. The unique art of the poets, painters and craftsmen included in this exhibition beautifully complement and enhance each other: an illustration on a fan is poetically translated whilst the poetry illustrates the fan. Poems inscribed by 12th century Chinese Emperors onto silk fans will be included in the exhibition.

These are beautiful! This reminds me of the book 100 Movements for a Fan by Paul Claudel (interestingly, he is the brother of the lover of Rodin!). I recommend the book to you!I'd like to add your link to my blog, if that's ok with you.And please feel free to drop by my blog, since it is a poetry blog.
