Chinese Paintingby Torao Miyagawa
Of all the arts of China, painting is the most accessible to the Westerner. Not only is the bold line and spare composition of classical Chinese painting surprisingly appealing to modern sensibilities, but many masterpieces of Chinese painting are on view in Western museums. To truly enjoy the glories of this great tradition, however, a knowledge of the origins, growth, and development of painting in China is crucial. This volume provides just this information in a historical survey that traces Chinese painting from the earliest designs scratched into tomb walls, through its full glory in the dynastic period, to the decline of classical painting in the early modern era.
