    About this book

This very pleasant album of Chinese art presents a survey of
the 100 most beautiful paintings in China's art history.

The artworks are arranged on a temporal axis and comprise the
most impressive character, historical, landscape, and flower and
bird paintings from the long and varied history of the art of the
Chinese people. Each work is presented on a single page organised
so that the left side of the page reveals the painting in its full view
and presents its style, characteristics, production background, and
the historical and cultural context in vivid, but precise terminology.
The right side of the page focuses on the most noteworthy
aspects of the painting. Such an arrangement encourages the
reader to fully grasp the exquisiteness of Chinese art within
the broader context of China's artistic development while also
encouraging a comparison with one's own aesthetic experience.

The Most Beautiful Chinese Paintings is a classic album
that combines the pleasure of reading and learning with the
principles of art appreciation. The book has been designed
and produced with special attention to the use of paper and
layout. The front page and cover of the album are silkysmooth
to the touch, while the traditional hand-sewn
binding conveys the delicate sense of Chinese elegance.
