von der Burg, Christer et al: THE ART OF CONTEMPORARY CHINESE WOODCUTS. Zhongguo Dangdai Muban Yishu. London, 2003. 268 pp. 60 colour and 171 b/w plates. Glossary, bibliography. 33x24 cm. Paper.
This is a separate independent publication that accompanies and showcases the major 'portfolio' project of the same name undertaken by the Muban Foundation. The portfolio is a collection of 60 original prints by contemporary artists in order both to benefit the individual artists and to bring contemporary Chinese woodblock prints to the attention of other printmakers, collectors, dealers and museums outside China. In this book, the prints are finely reproduced in colour and joined with authoritative essays by An Bin, Julia F. Andrews, Ellen Johnston Laing and Frances Wood. Hwang Yin has provided biographies of the artists and David Barker contributes a glossary of Chinese printmaking terms. A groundbreaking reference in a new and exciting field for collectors and students of art history.
Full details of the Muban print portfolio available upon request.
