This oversized volume presents 105 important paintings in chronological order, from the Eastern Jin dynasty (AD 317--420) to the end of the nineteenth century. These masterworks range from brightly coloured and crisply delineated Buddhist frescoes to the muted yet evocative ink-wash landscapes of the literati painters. Each spread is devoted to a single painting: on the verso the work is reproduced in full, with a narrative caption that describes its style, iconography, and historical context; and on the recto there appears a gorgeously printed full-page detail that allows the reader to appreciate the true qualities of the work. A general historical introduction skilfully traces the development of the three major genres of Chinese painting--figurative, landscape, and bird-and-flower--through each successive dynasty. The reader's enjoyment of the artistic treasures gathered within these pages will be heightened by the refined luxury of the book's design. Printed on a premium paper whose subtle texture recalls the feel of silk, it is crafted in the traditional Chinese manner, with folded leaves and a hand-sewn thread binding. Its soft covers are protected by an elegant wraparound case stamped in gold. A worthy monument to a great cultural tradition, Masterpieces of Classical Chinese Painting will appeal to lovers of both fine editions and fine art. AUTHOR: Zheng Xinmiao is director of the Palace Museum in Beijing. Zhang Hongxing is a senior curator and researcher at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Shao Jingjing is a curator at the National Museum of China. Guo Guang is general manager of CYPI Press. Zhang Bo is a historian of Ming and Qing dynasty art. Jiang Peng is an expert in scroll paintings of the Song through Qing dynasties. Li Lin, director of the Department of Art History at Luxun Academy of Fine Arts, specializes in the earlier history of Chinese painting. ILLUSTRATIONS: 234 colour *… (mais)

I have just finished reading and savouring the Abbeville edition of "Masterpieces of Chinese Painting" edited by Zheng Xinmiao.
This magnificent volume can be enjoyed from three perspectives:-
- the contents
- the volume production
- the case in which the book is stored

The contents covers the best of Chinese painting over the last 1700 years, and demonstrates how Chinese painting was significantly superior to that in the West in the 4thC. but the Chinese style (to my mind) changed little over the next nearly two thousand years while western painting became significantly more sophisticated during the Renaissance. There are 280 pages of large plates accompanied by a simple explanation of the artist, his period and the work.

The volume is extraordinary in its production and I have no other book anything like it in my extensive library. The book is technically a paperback, but this grossly underestimates its format. The thick golden covers encloses pages that are bound by external stitching with tied threads in the ancient Chinese style. The pages are printed on only one side of the paper, BUT each page is actually twice the width of the book and folded back onto itself so each end of the page is bound into the book. Several paintings flow over the fold in the paper from one page to the next. There are also several fold out pages. The book is huge at 42cm tall.

The case is a delight, with multiple flaps folding around the book and the final closure by two toggle clasps, again in the Chinese style, and very adequately protects this valuable volume.
