A History of Art in 20th-Century China
Lü Peng, China’s foremost modern art historian, incisively analyzes developments in Chinese art from the late Qing Dynasty through to the opening years of the 21st century in this new revised edition of A History of Art in 20th-Century China, published for the first time simultaneously in French and English editions. The art that emerged over the course of a troubled century and more of Chinese history reveals a complex evolution with intrinsic connections to contemporary life. Lü Peng ably charts that evolution, not only in mainland China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, but also in important centers such as Paris and Tokyo. This comprehensive narrative will remain for many years the reference to which those seeking knowledge of this history will inevitably turn.
