This seminar course will examine the arts inspired by Zen Buddhism. We will begin with a study of Zen ideas and doctrines and then pursue an in-depth discussion of how art functions as a meditative and didactic tool for the Zen master. Although our primary focus will be on ink painting from the 12th century to the present, we will also explore the arts associated with the tea ceremony, Zen gardens and architecture.Since this is an art history seminar, class discussions are emphasized and written work, including a research paper, will be required.
