Description / Abstract China's brush-and-ink traditions remain vital in contemporary Chinese art; the genre is continually under renewal by successive generations of artists. The first book-length survey in English on recent trends in this discipline, Chinese Ink Painting Now reflects the recent dissemination of Chinese art and the explosion of interest in this work in the West. Nearly 60 artists are discussed here, including leading figures of postwar modernism such as Liu Kuo-sung; "New Literati" artists like Li Jin and other figurative painters; calligraphers such as Gu Gan; New Wave figures and conceptual artists including Xu Bing, Wenda Gu and Qiu Zhijie; and landscape artists whose work ranges from the traditional-Li Huayi, Fang Jun and Yuan Jai-to the abstract, such as Jia Youfu and Qiu Deshu. There are colorful women-warriors by New York feminist Fay Ku, monochromes by Nobel literature laureate Gao Xingjian and social commentary by the likes of Yang Jiechang, Li Jin and Wei Qingji.
