The authors have collaborated to produce a valuable resource guide that lists the most significant Chinese artists to emerge during the period of time from the 1890 to 1949. It examines these Chinese artists both in relation to the historical period in which they worked as well as in relation to the specific genre they were working in. At the end of the book, there is a listing of the most important Chinese modern painters, along with a concise biography of each, followed by a discussion of the various centers of Chinese modern painting. The bibliography has been broken down into works in English and works in Chinese.

"... every artist in this volume is given a biographical sketch and there are a number of reproductions of paintings to illustrate the varying styles from abstract, impressionism, realism to traditional Chinese ink and watercolor painting, along with woodcut and commercial art. This book could not have come into being without Dr. Bao's many return trips to China, his extended stays and exhaustive research. We hope our efforts will increase interest in China and Chinese art and stimulate a deeper interest in evaluating works of art, and learning from them more about the artist and his particular society." - (from the Preface) Dr. Letitia Lane, retired Professor of English and Art"
