This handsome volume offers a fresh, comprehensive look at the Cleveland Museum of Art's world-renowned collection of Chinese paintings. With in-depth study of more than 100 selected works and more than 400 colour illustrations, Silent Poetry reflects the growth, both in size and in scope, of the Cleveland Museum's holdings of Chinese art over the past thirty years. Renowned scholars Ju-hsi Chou and Anita Chung, who have overseen the museum's Chinese art collection for almost two decades, contribute new scholarship gleaned through investigative methods, conventional and innovative, including the examination of works using digital technology as a supplement to traditional analyses of style, text, context and artistic technique. This book is an authoritative reference for students, scholars and collectors and represents the most up-to-date research on this marvellous collection of paintings and encourages new directions in the study of Chinese art.
