The Distant Mountains
Chinese Painting of the Late Ming Dynasty, 1570-1644
By James Cabill. 8.5" x 12", 310 pages, hardcover. This survey of Chinese painting from 1570 to 1644 details the lives and work of 42 leading artists. There are over 150 plates, including 19 in color, both of familiar masterworks and seldom seen pieces, culled from leading collections in Asia and the West. This wealth of visual delight and instruction ably reinforces a text that is written with a great felicity of style.
