Traditional Chinese painting is one of the purest art forms in existence, continuing as it does the techniques and themes that have been employed over centuries to create the most exquisite works in ink and wash. Whether meticulously realist or vibrantly expressive, often expertly combining skilful calligraphy with stunning draughtsmanship, these works all pay homage to what went before them. Focusing on classical painting, especially the colour-infused work of the Ming (1368–1644) and Qing dynasties (1644–1912), this delightful book reveals the fascinating history of Chinese painting. From Dai Jin to Ma Quan; from dramatic mountainscapes and tranquil rivers, through intricate and vivid depictions of animals and flowers, to peaceful pastoral scenes and busy tableaux of court life, the engaging text and lush reproductions ensure an enchanting read.
