Where the Truth Lies: The Art of Qiu Ying (Catalog)
Title: Where the Truth Lies: The Art of Qiu Ying
Author: Stephen Little
Author: Wan Kong
Author: Einor Cervone
Abstract: Celebrated for his masterful brushstrokes, depictions of nature, and use of translucent blue-green pigments, Qiu Ying is the least known of the four Ming Dynasty masters of the Wu School. This elegantly produced and groundbreaking monograph, the first Western-language publication devoted to the painter, draws on new scholarship to offer a deep and rich appreciation of Qiu Ying's achievements beyond the landscapes for which he is renowned. Over eighty of the artist's paintings, including many of his most accomplished works, are presented in glorious color illustrations. The accompanying texts point readers to the painter's key stylistic qualities and show a clear chronological framework of his development as an artist. Fans of the lush, poetic painting of the Ming Dynasty and Chinese art history in general, will relish this definitive appreciation of an artist who transcended many boundaries that came to define Ming society and culture.

Primary URL Description: Few artists in Chinese history have proven as enigmatic as the great Ming dynasty painter Qiu Ying (c. 1494-c. 1552), whose life and art reveal a series of paradoxes. Though one of the most famous artists of the Ming period, almost nothing is known about his life. He is said to have been illiterate, yet surviving evidence demonstrates elegant writing. He is said to have had few followers, yet he was the most copied painter in Chinese history. Where the Truth Lies grapples with such issues as artists who cross social boundaries, literacy, and the importance of connoisseurship in determining quality and authenticity. This will be the first exhibition on Qiu Ying ever organized outside of Asia. In addition to masterworks by Qiu Ying, the exhibition will include works by his predecessors and teachers, his daughter Qiu Zhu, and followers from the early 16th through the mid-20th century
