An Illustrated Guide to 50 Masterpieces of Chinese Paintings


Over thousands of years, the art of Chinese painting has evolved, while also staying loyal to its traditional roots. Despite various schools of thought, styles and techniques, three primary categories have emerged across the discipline: landscape, figure and bird-and-flower. Using fine ink and water brush strokes on paper or silk, Chinese artists have developed a unique style-one that's famous throughout the world.

This book highlights 50 Chinese paintings, pulled from museum collections in China and around the world, including:

  • British Museum, London
  • Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
  • Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York
  • Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas
  • Osaka City Museum of Art, Osaka
  • Palace Museum, Beijing
  • Palace Museum, Taipei
  • Shanghai Museum, Shanghai

The paintings shown are representative of the categories, historical periods and styles of this artistic tradition.

Detailed professional interpretations and notes allow readers to learn more about the pieces themselves, the artists and the context in which they were created. Plus, photo enlargements of key details get readers up close to these masterpieces.

As one of the world's oldest continuous art forms, Chinese painting has a truly special history. This comprehensive guide allows modern readers to travel through time, experiencing important moments in Chinese history and society through beautiful pieces of artwork.
