March 2016: Greenberg Presents on Jesuit Art in Mongol China

On March 1, Daniel Greenberg, lecturer in Asian Art and East Asian Studies at Smith College, visits the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies to present on “Landscapes of Power: Mongol Ritual, Jesuit Painting, and the Construction of Eighteenth-Century Chinese Empire.” Greenberg’s remarks at Boston College consider the meaning behind paintings completed by the Jesuit missionary artists representing the annual birthday celebration of the Qinalong emperor, especially how the paintings help to “make individual historical moments emblematic of greater cosmological truths.”
