Looking for the imprints left by Su Dongpo in the Palace Museum collection

Admiring the painting and calligraphy of Song, Yuan and Ming dynasties and trying to learn more about Su Dongpo and his era.

Dozens of high-definition paintings from the Palace Museum and other museums from home and abroad are included to present the beauty of calligraphy and painting by Su Dongpo.

This book depicts the life experiences of Su Dongpo in 10 dimensions: entering officialdom, making a living, calligraphy, painting, literature, making friends, the literati, family, politics, and Lingnan. Following Su’s life journey, the author has selected the painting and calligraphy of the Song, Yuan, and Ming dynasties from the collection of the Palace Museum to connect Su’s spiritual world with the history of art and to reflect on his era. It is more than a biography of Su Dongpo since it also records the cultural features of the Song Dynasty.
