This book takes the reader through the wondrous world of traditional Chinese paintings. The author, Professor Zhang Anzhi, originally taught at the Central Institute of Fine Arts. A veteran painter and a permanent executive member of the All-China Society of Art History before his death in 1990, he had kept busy with research work, in addition to teaching.Working his way through a vast collection of records, the author classifies the material systematically and underscores for the readers all. As he recounts the long. history of Chinese painting, he defines its traditions through the ages, beginning with pictures drawn by early men of the Neolithic period, through the successive dynasties, to modern and contemporary Chinese paintings which have inherited and developed those traditions. He even probes early man's understanding and concept of painting from pictures mentioned in mythology and legends; and painted on unearthed relics. The author provides throughout a running commentary on the repre- sentative painters of the various periods, their works and aesthetic views.The book contains a wealth of data of both academic value and common interest. There are 190 illustrations throughout the text of the book. It is a book for the connoisseur as well as the beginner, for people with refined or popular tastes.
