Perspectives, Placing the Viewer in Song Dynasty Painting and Maps
This talk presents part of a larger project that examines the depiction of specific sites, regions, and empire during the Song dynasty (10th—13th century). By focusing on how paintings and maps position the viewer vis-à-vis the landscape, I will explore how geographical knowledge is constructed with painterly and graphic means and what the implications are with regard to how observation, survey, and measuring translate into extrapolations that present a visual experience.
