Description
Wang Hui, the most celebrated painter of late 17th-century China, played a key role both in reinvigorating past traditions of landscape painting and in establishing the stylistic foundations for the imperially sponsored art of the Qing court. Twenty-seven of Wang Hui's paintings, drawn from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and from museums in Beijing, Taipei, Shanghai, and Tokyo, are discussed and depicted here in multiple color plates and double page–filling detail views, including his masterwork, a monumental scroll depicting the Kangxi emperor's Southern Inspection Tour. Here too are essays examining his life and achievement, as well as ancient Chinese paintings and works by Wang's contemporaries.
