From the front flap: “This publication brings to North America the first comprehensive review in the English language of the work of an important twentieth-century practitioner of Chinese painting, Chang Ku-nien (1906–1987). During a period of dramatic political change in China, Chang strove to adapt the centuries old traditions of this deeply revered art form to the starkly different physical, cultural, and political environments he experienced across a lifetime. Trained in Shanghai, the versatile Chang later resettled in Taiwan. A member of the fabled Seven Friends Painting Society, Chang responded dynamically to the vitality of his new environment. In later years, he traveled between Taiwan and the United States and created a highly expressive, personal, and sensitive vision of the landscapes of North America." (os) Dust jacket present. First Edition.
