what are the differences between zen chinese buddhist art and zen japanese buddhist art?

I’m writing a paper on buddhist art in japan and china. I need some helpful resources. Particularly on the meaning of enlightenment depicted in the paintings

Wikipedia has a good article on Buddhist art, with sections on Chinese and Japanese Buddhism.

Open Directory has links to some good resources:

Best wishes on your project.

    Since Ch’an passed through Korea before it arrived in Japan, I think you also should consider looking at the Korean view of Seon (Zen) as well. You will get a broader picture (no pun intended)
