Chinese and Japanese Handscroll Paintings
The Center for the Art of East Asia initiated the Digital Scrolling Paintings Project to support the teaching of classes on East Asian painting.
The Scrolling Paintings website has a public-access portion that includes works of art by agreements with collaborating institutions. These include the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Smart Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, the St. Louis Art Museum, and the University of Chicago Library. We are continuing to build the website with additional paintings and hope to collaborate with other museums to include paintings held in their collections.
