Carefully packed and quickly sent in rugged shipping box (or Priority Envelope). 201411233 133 pages. ; Studies in Chinese Art History and Archaeology. Paintings from the Tsien-hsiang-chai Collection provide vivid examples of the continuities and changes in modern Chinese art. They exemplify a wide range of styled and subject matter, and provide us with an excellent opportunity to appreciate and understand modern Chinese painting as an embodiment of modern Chinese cultural history. The turbulent story of modern China, as Jonathan Spence has put it, "is made up of overlapping cycles of collapse and reconsolidation, of revolution and evolution, of conquest and movements for progress." Just as many intellectuals advocated reforms in the social and political arenas, so they also espoused changes in painting.
