Product description

Empty and Full - The Language of Chinese Painting - Francois Cheng

Focusing on the principles of emptiness, Francois Cheng uses semiotic analysis and textual explication to reveal the key themes and structures of Chinese aesthetics in the practice or pictorial art. Among the many Chinese writers, poets and artists whose writings are quoted, he gives special emphasis to a great Ch'ing dynasty theoretician and painter, Shih-t'ao. Twenty-seven reproductions of the words of Shih-t'ao and other masters illustrate the interpretive commentary.

A neat and tidy copy of this book with slight grubbiness to the edges.
