Out of character : decoding Chinese calligraphy = Fa ji : Guan yuan shan zhuang zhen cang fa shu xuan( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What defines a masterwork of calligraphy? Out of Character, a collaborative effort from leading Chinese and U.S. scholars, tries to answer this question by focusing on fifteen calligraphic masterpieces. Supporting these masterworks are an additional twenty-five works of the highest quality. Calligraphy has been admired as the ultimate art form by China's educated elite for more than 2,000 years. Over that time a complex set of rules and conventions has evolved that impacts every aspect of the calligrapher's practice. Within the constraints of their artistic tradition, creativity and self-expression have remained of primary importance to the Chinese calligrapher. With mind and hand in accord, Chinese calligraphers express the strength of their character in the characters they write. Out of Character provides the context and the critical tools viewers need to understand why this art form has been so admired in the Chinese tradition"--

Ink worlds : contemporary Chinese painting from the collection of Akiko Yamazaki and Jerry Yang = Mo jing : Shanqi Langzi Yang Zhiyuan cang dang dai shui mo hua by Richard Ellis Vinograd( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ink arts have flourished in China for more than two millennia. Once primarily associated with elite culture, ink painting is now undergoing a popular resurgence. Ink Worlds explores the modern evolution of this art form, from scrolls and panel paintings to photographic and video forms, and documents how Chinese ink arts speak to present-day concerns while simultaneously referencing deeply historical materials, themes, and techniques. Presenting the work of some two dozen artists from China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the United States in more than fifty full-color reproductions, the book spans pioneering abstract work from the late 1960s through twenty-first century technological innovations. Nine illustrated essays build a compelling case for understanding the modern form as a distinct genre, fusing art and science, history and technology, painting and film into an accessible theory of contemporary ink painting. The Yamazaki/Yang collection is widely recognized as one of the most important private collections of contemporary Chinese ink art. Ink Worlds is the first book to represent the collection in its entirety. From its atmospheric mountainscapes to precise calligraphy, this book is a revelation, bringing together the past, present, and future of an enduring and adaptable art form."--

Fang Zhaoling : a life in painting by Zhaolin Fang( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The work of twentieth-century Chinese women artists is now coming into focus,'" writes Asian Art Museum director Emily Sano in her preface to this book, "'illuminating many remarkable stories of talent, resiliance, and will.'" One of those stories is that of Fang Zhaoling. This catalogue of an exhibition of her paintings at the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco from October 1 to November 13, 2005, sheds needed light on her long career, during which she has consistently produced innovative work of charm and distinction. Fang Zhaoling was educated in the techniques of traditonal chinese painting. It is is a testament to her determination and her family's foresight that this was so, for such an eduction was uncommon for women of her generation. She continued throughout her life to form important associations and collaborations with leading Chinese painters, and she has played an integral role in the history of modern Chinese painting."
