This compelling and lavishly illustrated presentation offers fresh insight into the mysterious life and works of Bada Shanren (1625–1705), the Chinese Ming dynasty master of the brush whose idiosyncratic visual vocabulary was full of personal symbolism and artistic gesture. The central catalogue of Bada's works details the significant features of each artwork, along with translations of all texts and calligraphy.
