The Resonance of Qin in East Asian Art explores the rich cultural resonance of the qin ("chin"), a stringed instrument whose 2,000-year history in East Asia is traced in the ... almost 40 paintings, sculptures, drawings, woodblock prints, and domestic and scholar's objects inspired by its forms. This exhibition examines the qin's varying roles in East Asian cultures, and reveals how its unique aesthetic became associated with scholarly ideals and the pursuit of enlightenment. The catalogue features essays on the qin in China and Japan by Stephen Addiss, guest curator of the exhibition, an essay on the qin in Korea and Vietnam by Mitchell Clark, as well as an essay on the qin in early China by Kenneth DeWorskin.

1999 Paperback New 0965427021. Flawless copy, brand new, pristine, never opened--143 pages; illustrated. Publisher description: "The Chinese qin, an ancient seven-stringed ... zither, was an integral part of literati culture in East Asia. Its mythic origins, the beauty and efficacy of its music, and the legendary heroism of its musicians are all part of the vast canon and lore that developed around the instrument over the course of two thousand years. The music of the qin was celebrated in poetry, and the instrument came to be de rigeur in depictions of solitary scholar-gentlemen at leisure in the landscape. Selected works of art, antique instruments, and four separate essays are brought together to explain the profound significance of the ancient qin and its music, and its spread from China to Japan, Korea, and Vietnam."
