THE WAY OF CHINESE PAINTING
is based on Maimai Sze's THE TAO OF PAINTING, published in two large volumes by the Bollingen Foundation in 1956. Kenneth Rexroth in the Nation wrote of Miss Sze's book: "Every American artist and art critic should buy and study this book. Nothing could be a better answer to the problems and dilemmas of modern abstract expressionism. Nothing could be a better antidote to the enervating poisons which have debilitated modern painting."
In this shorter version, the author defines the essence of Chinese painting as a form of art as well as a way of life, and in her translation of the classic MUSTARD SEED GARDEN MANUAL OF PAINTING demonstrates the technique as well as the spirit of Chinese painting.
