CMA displays ink rubbings
“From Caves to Tombs: Chinese Pictorial Rubbings from Stone Reliefs” opens Friday at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
The exhibition explores the tradition of making and mounting ink rubbings from stone reliefs, practiced in China at least since the sixth century. Before high-resolution color photography was available, life-size rubbings taken from ancient sites and cultural relics in China played an important role as primary source and study material. This display celebrates the recent conservation of two monumental rubbings from the Buddhist caves of Longmen in central China.
It will be on display through Nov. 14. For more information, go to www.clevelandart.org or call 888-CMA-0033.
