Links for Thursday: Morgan Library, Artist in Residence Programs

William Blake: Behemoth and Leviathan, ca. 1805–10 [Book of Job, no. 15]

Artist in Residence Programs: The platform Transartists is a one-stop resource for information about artist-in-residence programs. It also covers artist tools and services, art education, funding, festivals, and art competitions, and includes a section, Offered & Wanted, where artists can exchange information about studio swaps, workshops, or other activities. 

 The UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive presents "Beauty Revealed: Images of Women in Qing Dynasty Chinese Painting."

Featuring nearly thirty works, this exhibition is the first to bring together a genre of Chinese painting known as meiren hua, or paintings of beautiful women. Situating the works within the social and economic contexts of the High Qing period (mid-seventeenth to the late eighteenth century), the exhibition challenges the prevailing opinion that these subjects are high status women-either members of the court or other privileged women. By reading the visual codes embedded in the images, Beauty Revealed instead makes the case that these women are courtesans.
on view September 25 through December 22, 2013.
