about

This comprehensive overview of painting in China?s last dynasty, the Qing (1644?1911), fills a need in the field of East Asian art history and will be welcomed by students and collectors. Claudia Brown provides a thorough chronological account of painting in the Qing period, from the tumultuous Ming?Qing transition to the end of imperial rule, while examining major influences along the way. Among topics explored are the relationship between painting and mapmaking, the role of patrons and collectors, printmaking and publishing, religious themes, and Western influences. Great Qing is innovative in providing many fine examples of Qing painting in American museums, works from all regions of China, and paintings by women.

This book will appeal to historians of Chinese art, culture, and society; museum curators; and art collectors.

Great Qing is innovative in providing many fine examples of Qing painting in American museums, works from all regions of China, and paintings by women.This book will appeal to historians of Chinese art, culture, and society; museum curators; and art collectors.The scope is immense?comprising nearly three centuries of painting history during a period of rapid and unprecedented social, economic, and political change. Brown casts a wide net in her attempt to capture both longstanding subfields of study and newer territories. She ranges geographically across the Qing empire, beyond frequently trod ground in Beijing and the Jiangnan region. She considers social categories, conscientiously including imperial family, government officials, religious persons, women, and foreigners in her broad narrative. And she gestures toward a variety of issues, such a patronage, politics, identity, commemoration, commercialization, travel, tradition, and modernity. - De-nin Lee, author of The Night Banquet: A Chinese Scroll through Time
