Brilliant Strokes, the book, is a stunning accompaniment to the exhibition: art enthusiasts and readers intrigued by Asian art are invited to tour its luminous pages.

Editorial Reviews

"This is the second in a series of publications dedicated to the analysis of a private donation of major Asian works to the University of Alberta. The folios in this edition contain works from the 15th to the late 20th centuries and include pen and ink illustrations of rural scenery, daily pursuits, and court life, as well as cameos of flowers, insects, and animals through the centuries.... The number of works under discussion is quite small, but it is evident that they have been chosen as representational of important schools and epochs of art.... This is a valuable tool as a quick overview of several centuries of Chinese painting." Lisa Arsenault, CBRA, 2009
