Along the River Bank: Chinese Paintings from the C. C. Wang Family Collectionby Maxwell K. Hearn, Wen C. Fong (Joint Author)
One of the most important landscape hanging scrolls in the history of Chinese art-The River bank, attributed to the 10th-century painter Dong Yuan-is among the highlights of this volume, which explores the C. C. Wang Family Collection, one of the finest collections of Chinese old masters in private hands. Published to accompany an exhibition of works from the C. C. Wang Family Collection at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the book spans seven centuries of painting history. Wen C. Fong presents an in-depth contextual history of The Riverbank, which marks the inception of the monumental landscape tradition in China. Maxwell K. Hearn examines selected works in the C. C. Wang collection-important figural paintings, flower-and-bird paintings, and works of political protest-all of which are reproduced in color.
