the essence of chinese painting
At regular intervals I try to analyze various aspects of Chinese painting, its philosophy, concepts, techniques, etc. on the basis of short contributions.
The author studied Chinese painting and art history, lived in China for 5 years, studied at the Central Academy of Fine Arts and wrote his dissertation on Chinese free-hand style painting (写意画 xieyi-hua).
For many years the author has been giving lectures on Chinese art or writing articles about it or speaking at symposia on China.
The author’s book contributions can usually be found in books that have been published by BACOPA Verlag.
