Exhibition Catalogue of the Teacher Exemplar for a Myriad Generations: Confucius in Painting, Calligraphy, and Print Through the Ages Special Exhibition(in Chinese)

Beginning on July 1, 2017, the National Palace Museum will host special exhibition Teacher Exemplar for a Myriad Generations: Confucius in Painting, Calligraphy, and Print Through the Ages, introducing a total of 35 Confucius-related artifacts. Similar to the special exhibition, the exhibition catalogue is divided into four themes, which are "Portraits of the Sage," "Engravings on Confucius," "Confucianism Through the Ages," and "Illustrating the Classics." "Portraits of the Sage" explores images of Confucius and his 72 disciples, revealing that the various representations of Confucius seen today mostly come from later attempts to portray him based on literary descriptions and artists' imagination. "Engravings on Confucius" presents Temple of Confucius renovated and events commemorated and engraved in stone steles to worship Confucius after he passed away. "Confucianism Through the Ages" exhibits famous Confucian writings, explains Confucian-based calligraphy works, and showcases imperial plaques presented to temples dedicated to Confucius. "Illustrating the Classics" delves into drawings used to illustrate Confucian ethics and Confucian disciples. The monograph found in the exhibition catalogue expounds the image of Confucius exemplified in the paintings and the subject of Confucianism demonstrated in calligraphy works. With Confucius possibly having the greatest influence on China among all Chinese historical figures, this exhibition catalogue shows readers the image of Confucius as well as the respect for Confucius and Confucianism displayed in paintings and calligraphy works, making the exhibition catalogue the perfect item for collection among interested readers.
