About this title


Interest in scholars' stones, collected by Chinese literati and artists since the Tang dynasty, has exploded in the West over the last several years, with over a dozen major exhibits mounted in museums around the world. Yet there exists only a handful of titles in English on the subject, and important texts such as the Suyuan Stone Catalogue , China's most comprehensive illustrated book on the subject, have never been translated. Scholars' Rocks in Ancient China , with its illuminating anecdotes and well-rendered wood-block illustrations, is an invaluable reference book for the study of ancient Chinese scholars' stones. With its 188 illustrations, informative notes, character list, and bibliography, it is destined to greatly enrich the literature on stone collecting.

About the Author:

Kemin Hu was stirred to an appreciation of scholars' stones by her father, a noted connoisseur of Chinese antiquities. She became an authority on scholars' stones through her long career as a dealer and collector of them, as well as through her friendships with such great collectors as Richard Rosenblum and C. C. Wang. Kemin Hu is also the author of Spirit of Gogshi: Chinese Scholars' Rocks .
