Fang Zhaoling: A Life in Painting
Asian Art Museum--Chong-Moon Lee Center for Asian Art and Culture, Sep 16, 2005 - Art - 128 pages
"The work of twentieth-century Chinese women artists is now coming into focus," writes Asian Art Museum director Emily J. Sano in her preface to this book, "illuminating many remarkable stories of talent, resilience, and will."
One of those stories is that of Fang Zhaoling (1914-2006). This catalogue sheds needed light on her long career, during which she consistently produced innovative work of charm and distinction. Her paintings are marked by a delightful style that is distinctly her own.
Fang Zhaoling was an engaged artist who did not shy from addressing political and social issues. In her choice of subjects and inscriptions, she spoke with a clear and compelling voice that called out to be heard.
