Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Though they may have some knowledge of painting, sculpture, and other art forms, most Westerners are perhaps less familiar with an art form that is one of the most highly treasured in China: calligraphy. The Embodied Image is the accompanying catalogue to an exhibition culled from one of the world's most comprehensive collections of Chinese calligraphy, the John B. Elliott Collection at The Art Museum, Princeton University.
