Chinese Landscape Painting, 900-1125

To study the evolution of early Chinese landscape painting as a symbolic language in a third volume devoted to this art. Volume I, The Birth of Landscape Painting in China was published in 1962. Volume II is now almost finished. Volume III will relate the evolution of Chinese landscape painting as closely as possible to the thought, literature and poetry of the period. A feature of this volume will be a "grammar" of the formal repertoire at the painter's command. The period under study saw both the climax of pictorial realism and the sowing of seeds of an attitude to painting that led to the abandonment of realism by the painters of the scholar class.
