huntington symposium - peach blossom spring

A symposium at The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens
Saturday September 26, 2015
8:30 am – 5 pm
Rothenberg Hall
Registration required; please see materials attached.
The Western Jin poet Tao Qian’s 陶潛 (Tao Yuanming 陶淵明, 365-427) “Record of the Peach Blossom Spring” (“Taohuayuan ji” 桃花源記) expressed the universal and utopian quest for an alternative and better society. The symposium will consider the literary and artistic themes inspired by a story which resonated for generations of artists and poets in China, as well as Japan and Korea.

This symposium was made possible by generous support from The Sammy Yukuan Lee Family
