About the Authors
  • In this lavishly illustrated study, the scholar and critic Yi Ying brings a distinctly Chinese perspective to the development of art and artists in China since 1949. These have been years of dramatic change for China, and the art of this period is therefore of historical, political and cultural interest, being first used to promote the revolutionary cause, later to question and criticise and, more recently, charting the changes in cultural and economic policy that have taken place since 1978. In the twenty-first century, Chinese art is diverse, distinctive, and highly prized in the global art market. Presented here in English translation for the first time, Yi's narrative opens up fresh questions about both the nature of contemporary art and the China of today.

    • Presents the work of one of China's leading art historians and critics in English translation
    • A thought-provoking introductory essay from Xiaobing Tang provides interpretative and historical context for students
    • This book is lavishly illustrated in full colour
