Item description for Dreaming the Southern Song Landscape: The Power of Illusion in Chinese Painting (Studies in Asian Art and Archaeology, 22) by Valerie Malenfer Ortiz...

This book establishes a new approach to reading Chinese landscape painting. It centers around an early key example of scholarly painting, viz. Dream Journey on the Xiao and Xiang Rivers (late 12th century). The author of this volume restores the status of Dream Journey as a cultural icon for Confucians, an object of contemplation for aesthetes, an imaginary dream journey for poets, and an incentive to cultivate one's moral intentions for both Buddhist monks and lay scholars.
