The Chinese often use the expression du hua, “to read a painting,” in connection with their study and appreciation of such works. This volume closely “reads” thirty-six masterpieces of Chinese painting from the encyclopedic collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, exploring multiple layers of meaning―style, technique, symbolism, past traditions, and the artist’s personal circumstances. A dynastic chronology, map, and list of further readings supplement the text.

Large French flaps. Lavishly illustrated.
