The Art of Contemporary Chinese Woodcuts, Published by Muban Foundation, 2003. ISBN-10: 0954604814 ISBN-13: 978-0954604813, size 33 x 2.5 x 23 cm, 267pp. £25.00

The 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.

This is the catalogue of the exhibition of “Chinese Printmaking Today”, held at British Library, 7 November 2003 – 7 March 2004.  Most of the prints featured in the book are in the collections of the Muban Educational Trust, London, which has the largest collection of Chinese pictorial prints in the world. Many of the prints have never been seen before. This textis an opportunity to make available to a wider audience an exciting aspect of contemporary Chinese art that is at present little known outside China. There are biographies of print artists, an extensive bi-lingual bibliography and information about Chinese art institutions.

This book is edited by Anne Farrer, Senior Lecturer at Sotheby’s Institute of Art, and was formerly Assistant Keeper responsible for the Chinese painting and print collections at the British Museum.
