Modern Chinese Ink Paintings : A Century of New Directions Paperback / softback


Displaying the beauty and skill of Chinese ink paintings through a selection of highlights from the British Museum's collection, Modern Chinese Ink Paintings features hanging scrolls, hand scrolls, large-scale paintings and album leaves to explore the innovative contributions of individual masters from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

Clarissa von Spee explores how their artistic work has helped shape the image of modern China, revealing how their works reflect the political climates and important events of the times in which they were created.

With reference to artistic exchanges between Picasso and Zhang Daqian, the relationship between modern Chinese painting and the modern Western art scene is also highlighted in this informative and accessible introduction to the subject.
