Legendary: Horses and Classical Chinese Literature is an exhibition inspired by Chinese culture and literature highlighting essential works from the East Asian Library’s Collection.

The depictions of horses convey well-known Chinese idioms and embody the characteristics and spirit of the horse as an important symbol in Chinese arts. The four great novels are among the world’s longest and oldest books and have permeated Chinese culture throughout their existence.

Please note that for all in-person events, attendees must adhere to Washington University’s public health requirements, including the latest events and meetings protocol. Guests will be required to show a successful self-screening result and wear a mask at all times.
