Bai Qianshen: FU SHAN'S WORLD. The Transformation of Chinese Calligraphy in the 17th Century. Harvard East Asian Monographs, 220. Harvard, 2003. xxii, 338 pp. 155 b/w illustrations, 58 line drawings. Map. Bibliography, character list, index. 29x22 cm. Cloth.
An example of recent western scholarship on Chinese calligraphy that is at last bringing to its study the quality of attention previously reserved for painting and other more accessible arts. Yet this well-illustrated study is also highly readable, not to say inspiring, and has much to say about the fascinating cultural transition from the Ming to Qing periods.
