Modern Chinese Painting & Europe

Hrsg.  Michaela Pejcochová und Clarissa von Spee
Sofort lieferbar. Erschienen Februar 2017

Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts begannen chinesische Künstler nach Europa zu reisen, um dort nach Inspiration und neuen Ideen zu suchen. Der Band beschreibt erste Ausstellungen und Sammlungen zur modernen chinesischen Kunst sowie den Austausch zwischen Künstlern und Wissenschaftlern in China und Europa.

Twentieth Century China experienced the collapse of its imperial system and the rise of a modern nation state. It was a century of war and revolution, as well as a time of reorientation and renewal. In their search for inspiration and reform, Chinese artists travelled abroad making Europe one of their foremost destinations. Artistic exchange and international interaction at the beginning of the twentieth century allowed museums and scholars in St. Petersburg, Prague, Berlin, Paris and the United Kingdom to be among the first in the West to exhibit, collect and study modern Chinese paintings.

This book presents essays by curators and experts who explore early encounters, friendships and exchanges between artists and scholars in China and Europe, including Zhang Daqian’s famous visit with Picasso. Beautifully illustrated, with paintings and historic photographs never previously published, this is the first study that highlights Europe’s key role in exhibiting, collecting and researching twentieth century Chinese painting.
