Editorial Reviews

Shane McCausland's study of Zhao Mengfu as a calligrapher and painter is a pleasure to read and a major contribution to the field of Chinese art studies. It is a landmark not only because it is the first monograph in a Western language on one of the most significant artists in world history, but also because of McCausland's great art historical sensitivity and sinological expertise.
