Over the span of half a century, Jung Ying Tsao assembled perhaps the finest collection of Chinese art in the Western hemisphere. This substantial overview of the Tsao family's 17th century paintings puts the spotlight on Dong Qichang, an artist of many styles, and the 130 color reproductions include paintings by Gong Xian, Hong Ren, Zhu Da, and Wang Yuanqi, alongside rare works by lesser-known artists, scholars, and Buddhist monks. The essays here cover the function of landscape in Chinese culture, and the flourishing of Buddhist and Daoist studies among late Ming and early Qing literati. The book is rounded out with translations of the poems and prose texts inscribed on the paintings and calligraphic works.
