The Jade Studio: Masterpieces of Ming and Qing Painting and Calligraphy from the Wong Nan-Ping Collection

£99.99

Product description

This softcover book is in very good condition overall. The cover of the book has some minor but noticeable wear, including small markings and minor fraying along some edges and corners. There are also some minor scuffs and markings on the edges of some pages, most noticeable when the book is closed. Inside however, the pages of the book are in very good condition and the vast majority, if not all, appear to be without issue.

'Assembled over a life-time of connoisseur-ship by the late Wong Nan-p'ing, the Jade Studio comprises on of the finest private collections of painting and calligraphy formed in the second half of the twentieth century. Won Nan-p'ing's collecting activities were informed by a deep knowledge and love of classical Chinese literature and culture and by a discerning eye. Like most collections, its content gradually changed as the collector refined his sensibility and taste... I sincerely hope that this exhibition, which will be on view in Hong Kong, the adopted home of Wong Nan-p'ing, on the tenth anniversary of his passing, will be both a tribute and a memorial to one of the most extraordinary collectors of Chinese painting and calligraphy of our time. - Mary Gardner Neill'
