A History of Art in 20th Century China
By Lü Peng. Preface by Bruce Gordon Doar, Fan Jingzhong.
In Lü Peng's A History of Art in 20th Century China, we at last possess a comprehensive and definitive account of the extraordinary development of Chinese art in the last century, written by its foremost expert. In over 1,200 pages of fully illustrated close analysis, Lü Peng traces the evolution of modern Chinese art, tackling its emergence not only in China, Taiwan and Hong Kong, but also in such important expat centers as Paris and Tokyo. Among the many artists encountered en route are Huang Yongping, Gu Wenda, Xu Bing, Zhang Xiaogang, Wang Guangyi, Fang Lijun, Yue Minjun, Zhou Chunya and over 200 other artists.
