Traditional Chinese painting was fundamentally an abstract art form, and sought to portray the harmony between the natural world and human emotion. In this book, part of the Introductions to Chinese Culture series, Lin Ci explores the history, theory and development of distinctive styles of Chinese painting. Like all the books in the series, it is written by a noted expert in the field, well illustrated with colour reproductions and offers an ideal introductory survey for both students and general readers.
