    About this book

Chinese painting dates back more than 3000 years. It may have been the ancient Chinese people's understanding of the universe and life, or the special nature of the earliest tools introduced to them that enabled the artists mainly to use lines with strength and beauty in painting from the very beginning, with an abstract form that defines its unique artistic quality. It is also this unique quality that has made Chinese painting one of the three major painting forms in the world. Chinese painting during the past hundred years has been very distinct from that of the Qing Dynasty (1644 - 1911) in both spirit and form, and a new style has come into being. This is particularly true in the last thirty years: after Chinese painting broke away from close attachment to politics and entered its own self-disciplined path of development, it has more clearly revealed its modern qualities.
In order to help the world understands and comprehends the condition and the development of Chinese modern painting and to share the aesthetic joy of its unique spirit and form, this series selected 60 representative artists from among the excellent artists from as early as the middle of nineteenth century to the present, these 60 volumes of Chinese Master Paintings are based on the principle of works representing the times and representing the styles of the artists, the artist's views on painting along with the paintings in order to completely understand and comprehend an artist and his paintings. These works, which are loaded with artistic information, both represent the views and beliefs of the artists toward nature and life, and completely embody every artist's sense of responsibility and mission towards life, society and history. The artists recommended in these volumes include: Li Keran, Wang Yiting, Chen Shizeng, Wu Fuzhi, Jiang Zhaohe, Huang zhou, Cheng Shifa, Tong Zhongtao, Kong Zhongqi and Liu Cun.
