Chang Dai Chien: Painting From Heart to HandAsianArtMuseumStore
Chang Dai-chien (1899–1983), one of the most celebrated Chinese painters of the twentieth century, is renowned for his stylistic variety and unparalleled productivity. This book explores three key artistic dimensions — Chang's early ink paintings emulating ancient Chinese styles, his lively portrayals of nature made while residing in Brazil and California and the transcendent splashed-ink art of his later years.
Stunning reproductions of masterworks and insightful texts come together to commemorate the 120th anniversary of Chang's birth and his lasting connection to the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco.
