Art of Contemporary Chinese Woodcuts

IMG_0901The Art of Contemporary Chinese Woodcuts (《中国当代木刻艺术》) showcases woodcuts of astonishingly high quality by 60 Chinese artists. The woodcuts were all produced specifically for the Portfolio presented in this volume. The large volume (33×23 cm) features full-page colour plates faced with an entry that describes the artist’s life, career, influences, awards, style, subject matter, and typical working method. Four lengthy essays, by art historians Frances Wood, Julia E Andrews, Ellen Johnston Laing and An Bin, discuss the history of Chinese prints before 1900, during the Revolution, during the People’s Republic, and from 1985. There is a 38 page glossary of Chinese woodcut terms, a list of Chinese institutions’ names and terms, and a bibliography.
