Example text

The art world was affected in several ways. One was that a large number of elite Chinese artists, in an effort to save themselves and escape the Taipings, made their way to Shanghai, and several of them traveled as far as Nagasaki. 38 Sino-Japanese Relations Two such émigré painters (who until recently have managed to escape most reference works) were Wang Kesan (b. 1822) and Xu Yuting (b. 1824). Wang was from Zhejiang Province, and he was hailed in Japan as the greatest Chinese calligrapher to reach that country since Jiang Jiapu, a reference that could have meaning only in Japan.

Shortly after his arrival, he tracked down his Chinese acquaintance from several years earlier in Nagasaki, Wang Kesan. Wang and Xu Yuting both lived in or near Shanghai now, and they saw to Unpei’s every need. Wang introduced him not only to the city of Shanghai but, more important, to the new Shanghai School of painting that was emerging in the city—and Unpei was decidedly underwhelmed. All these extensive Sino-Japanese exchanges in the world of art presupposed an active trade between the two countries.

The decline in the frequency of these Japanese embassies to Tang China and the length of their stays on the mainland in the last decades of the Tang reveals another change under way in Sino-Japanese relations. The disorder in China, especially after the An Lushan Rebellion of the mideighth century, slowly began to tarnish the cultural luster associated with the Tang. Japanese, of course, continued to visit and study on the mainland for centuries, but never again with the intensity we have seen.
