The landscape painting of China

£34.99

Product description


In an age when art history is too much dominated by proponents of theoretical, non-visual approaches to the works of art, really good examples of visual approaches are in short supply, and welcome. The Landscape Painting of China is a valuable visual/art-historical treatment of early Chinese painting, through the mid-seventeenth century and the Ming dynasty.James Cahill, author of Pictures for Use and Pleasure: Vernacular Painting in High Qing China



Revisits the significant stylistic study of Chinese painting, which has long been overdue.Ling-en Lu, assistant curator of Early Chinese Art, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City



Immediate, lively, engaging, and challenging, this work offers a tutorial in Chinese landscape painting that will guide the reader to see and understand this most subtle and expressive art form.Amy McNair, author of Donors of Longmen: Faith, Politics, and Patronage in Medieval Chinese Buddhist Sculpture



Chinese landscape painting is not just one of the great arts of China; it is one of the greatest products of world civilization. It has the power to transport us to another time and place and encourages us to re-think our notions of the natural world and our relationship to it.


The Landscape Painting of China: Musings of a Journeyman offers a stunning demonstration of the power of visual-based methodologies in the examination of great art. In it, Chinese landscape painting is explored from the emergence of monumental landscape painting in the ninth century through the artistic transformations of the early seventeenth century. The leading masterseveryone from Jing Hao to Dong Qichang and Chen Hongshouand the major monuments are subjected to a searching analysis, grounded in detailed observation and a mastery of both the traditional Chinese written source material and contemporary Western, Japanese, and Chinese scholarship.
