A Splendid Party: Zhou Lianggong (1612–1672) and His Friends in Literary Nanjing, 1669

Zhu Yayun
Qing official and art patron Zhou Lianggong 周亮工 (1612–1672) held a party for twenty Nanjing-affiliated painters and poets on a fine winter’s day in 1669. This party allows us to observe cultural life twenty-five years after the Ming-Qing dynastic transition. Despite Nanjing’s political significance as a former Ming capital, it was literary sociability, not political contestation, that dominated the social life of Nanjing’s artists and literati members in the late seventeenth century.
