by Simon Kwan

This first volume of the Muwen Tang Collection Series (20 Volumes) includes 106 Chinese portraits of the Ming and Qing dynasties, with detailed analysis of the drafting technique, costume conventions, dating criteria and an introductory paper by Dr. Simon Kwan. A very interesting study of a neglected area of Chinese art that is gaining recognition and popularity in recent years.
