LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

Melbourne.: Melbourne University Press.. 1966.. Many illustrations, chronology, xx + 286pp, index, quarto, elegant bookplate tipped in front free endpaper, very good in price clipped and protected dustjacket. "This book deals with the great Chinese calligraphers, and with the aesthetics of their work. It is the first to study these masters of the brush from the European viewpoint. It is intended largely for those who do not read Chinese, but who do appreciate the baeuty of its characters. Dr Ch'en combines both Chinese and European scholarship. He begins with a detailed description of the various scripts of Chinese written language, from the earliest inscriptions on bronzes and oracle bones through the innovations of subsequent centuries. He identifies the major calligraphers from Wang His-chih to Yu Yu-jan (d.1964). He then discusses calligraphy as an art, as it is seen by the Chinese, and its relation to such theories of modern art as abstractionism, constructionism, and action painting. Eighty selected masterpieces of Chinese calligraphy are reproduced and discussed." .
