Wu Guanzhong: A twentieth-century Chinese Painter

£60.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Wu Guanzhong: A Twentieth-century Chinese Painter
Anne Farrer
British Museum Press in association with Mei Yin, 1992.
Hardback; 320 x 235 mm; dark green boards with gold titles on spine; 176 pages. Original unclipped dust jacket. Over 60 colour and 50 black and white illustrations. Printed on good quality paper.
The book is in fine condition. Exciting new developments in Chinese art first appeared on the international scene following China’s re-establishment of cultural links with the West in the 1970s. Among the artists achieving greatest prominence was Wu Guanzhong, now recognised as a painter of unique sensibility and vision. His work, in both oils and Chinese ink and colour, exemplifies the creative fusion of a rich and ancient tradition with the most vigorous expressions of modern Western art.
The 74 examples of his work illustrated in this lavish publication, many accompanied by the artist’s own commentary, show his mastery of the two different media, oils and Chinese ink and colour. Introductory essays explore Wu’s life and achievements as well as his importance in the development of 20th century Chinese painting.
