Worshiping the Ancestors : Chinese Commemorative Portraits. [Foreword by Milo Cleveland Beach]. Washington: published by the Freer Gallery of Art and the Arthur M.

Illustrated, largely in colour. 4to, illustrated card covers with black spine, french flaps, white and black lettering to front, white lettering to spine. "Despite their compellingnpresenceand often exquisite quality, Chinese ancestor portraits have never been studied as a genre. This richly illustrated book is the first to explore in depth the artistic, historical, and religious significance of these remarkable paintings and to place them in context with other types of commemorativeportraiture. Since the sixteenth century, portraits were commissioned in China in great number and variety. Depictions of individuals range from formal iconic poses to the very casual and offer fascinating glimpses of Chinese life and culture. The riveting, realistic ancestor portaits -- supremelypowerful likenesses -- were important objects of veneration, and the practice of making memorial portraits continued into the twentieth century, whenpaintings were gradually replaced by photographs." - from the front flap.
