Overview

This book presents twelve major paintings by masters of the Ming dynasty (1368-1644), Qing dynasty (1644-1911), and modern periods, works given or promised to The Metropolitan Museum of Art by New York collectors Marie-Hélène and Guy Weill. The fully illustrated catalogue presents an in-depth discussion of each painting as well as a transcription and translation of inscriptions and seals.

The book begins with paintings that are quintessential embodiments of Ming literati values: a meditative landscape by Shen Zhou and an idealized portrayal of a gentleman in his yet-to-be-built retirement garden by Wen Zhengming. These are followed by an outstanding group of paintings by early Qing loyalist and orthodox artists of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries: a rare handscroll composition by the Nanjing painter Liu Yu, a monumental hanging scroll by the Anhui school artist Dai Benxiao, albums by the Anhui painter Mei Qing and the Yangzhou "eccentric" Li Fangying, as well as important works by the two leading Orthodox school painters of the time, Wang Hui and Wang Yuanqi. Also included are selections from a rare set of imperially commissioned rubbings of calligraphies in the Qing palace collection. The book concludes with noteworthy early works by the twentieth-century masters Zhang Daqian and C. C. Wang.

Author Biography: Maxwell K. Hearn is Curator in the Department of Asian Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Published in conjunction with an exhibition of the same name at New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art (through February 9, 2003), this book stands among the finest on Chinese landscape paintings. The selections, all from the Weills' collection and either given or promised to the Met, represent works by some of the most preeminent artists of Ming dynasty (1368-1644), Qing dynasty (1644-1911), and modern periods. In his in-depth discussion, Hearn (curator of Asian art at the Met and coeditor of Chinese Art: Modern Expressions) introduces, comments on, and analyzes the artists and works represented. Among many insights, he sheds light on the values and techniques of Ming literati painters, Qing loyalist and orthodox artists, and 20th-century masters. This handsomely illustrated volume is a feast for the eyes of researchers and Chinese art lovers. With 30 black-and-white and 75 color illustrations, it well deserves a precious space on the shelves of art collections in academic and public libraries.-Lucia S. Chen, N.Y.P.L.
