About the Authors
  • Traditional Chinese painting was fundamentally an abstract art form. Artists did not seek to represent direct copies of the natural world; rather, traditional Chinese paintings sought to portray the harmony between the natural world and human emotion, evoking ancient Chinese philosophy. From ancient scroll paintings to Buddhist grottoes to modern art, Lin Ci explores the history, theory and development of distinctive styles of Chinese painting, illustrated throughout with full color examples of these unique, treasured works of art.

    • An accessible introduction to the history and development of Chinese painting
    • Written by a Chinese expert whose work is not widely available outside of China
    • Full color illustrations support the discussion throughout
