Rather good and well-illustrated work showing 188 examples of Chinese bamboo and wood carvings from two private collections in China. Loosely arranged by type of carving - brushpots, figurines, small carved cups etc. The quality of the objects is generally very good and all are illustrated in colour plates with signatures of carvers shown. Brief captions to plates in English. Main text in Chinese. Useful 16 page appendix (listed alphabetically by pronunciation of character) of names of carvers with brief information on each carver. A worthwhile contribution to the subject.
Subjects: Scholar’s Studio Bamboo
