From earliest times the delicate precision of Chinese painting has captivated Western art lovers. The sophisticated techniques, the evident love of nature and the glimpses of a quiet civilised life all add to the enchantment. This book begins with the quick sketch-like painting from the Lo-Yang tombs, dating from the 3rd century, and continues with the closely observed T'ang paintings of people, not only Emperors and court dignitaries, but also peasants and grooms with the celebrated T'ang horses. Sung painters produced some of the most powerful landscapes in Chinese art, with their strangely shaped mountains looming menacingly up through the mists, and with man, absorbed in fishing or in meditation, dwarfed by the immensity of his environment. Nautre always present in Chinese art, now preoccupied painters almost to the exclusion of all else, and the studies of trees, particularly bamboo and pines, set in mountainous river landscapes are superb. Bussagli takes the account right up to the 19th and 20th centuries, a period seldom covered in books on Chinese painting. -- Book jacket
