Hidden Meanings of Love and Death in Chinese Paintings

Selections from the Marilyn and Roy Papp Collection

Chun-Yi Lee
Edited by Claudia Brown, Janet Baker and Chen Liu

Love and death - two of life’s most essential experiences - have long been themes explored in art. While portrayals of love and death in Western art has received much attention, these themes and their appearance in Chinese art, particularly in Chinese literati painting, has gone largely unexplored in museums and literature today. Hidden Meanings of Love and Death will draw from the Marilyn and Roy Papp Collection, an impressive and world-renowned collection of Chinese paintings from the 14th through 19th centuries, many of which capture the sadness, longing, nostalgia, fear and sexual yearning concealed within a visual language of metaphor and detailed, delicate imagery. The exhibition will include more than thirty pieces, including hanging scrolls, hand scrolls, albums, and fans, all of which have been meticulously and painstakingly researched for historical context and understanding.
