The thirty-five Cold Mountain drawings on display were key creative experiments leading toward Brice Marden’s widely acclaimed Cold Mountain paintings of the late 1980s. Marden has credited the ninth-century Chinese monk and poet Hanshan (“Cold Mountain”) and translator Bill Porter with inspiring his stylistic shift from monochrome to calligraphic painting.
