ABSTRACT
Examines `accident' in Chinese theories of artistic inspiration and generation by probing the cosmological and philosophical presuppositions that inform the imputed relationship between art and chance, and documents a major shift of critical emphasis from one that links creativity with nature to one that links it with culture. Discussion is framed by remarks on the place of chance in modernist discourse, specifically applied to Jackson Pollock's work and methods.
