The Ashmolean Museum's Department of Eastern Art houses a collection of Chinese paintings that has been built up since the 1950s to complement the University's substantial holdings of Chinese bronzes, ceramics and decorative arts. The paintings include several works by early Qing (1644--1911) dynasty artists but its strength lies in the late Qing and twentieth-century paintings, which constitute one of the foremost collections of their type in Europe. This catalogue presents more than two hundred major works, from seventeenth century landscapes, through landscape and figure paintings by modern masters such as Ren Yi, Wu Changshuo, Qi Baishi, Huang Binhong and Fu Baoshi, to recent work by contemporary artists, with inscriptions fully reproduced in Chinese characters, and an extensive bibliography.
