Catalogue of an exhibition at the Shanghai Museum showing the work of the small but influential early Qing dynasty Yushan School of Chinese painting, founded by the eminent painter, Wang Hui. The Yushan School combined elements of a number of earlier painting styles from the Northern Song through to the Ming and the School had a distinctive style, best manifested in the marvellously detailed paintings of Wang Hui. This exhibition shows a total of 92 works from the Shanghai Museum's excellent collection - 47 works by Wang Jian and 35 works by Wang Hui plus 10 works by disciples of the school. Illustrated throughout in colour. List of contents, list of plates and captions in English. Main text in Chinese.
