This book brings together over seventy Chinese fine brushwork paintings by Xu Jin, including figures, landscapes, animals, flowers and birds. While his works draw on sources in earlier art and traditional iconography, they also reflect Xu Jin's gift as a narrator and storyteller capable of inventing fresh and new ways of bringing the past to life.




Xu Jin’s paintings are characterized by stylish composition, impressive colors, and fine lines. They not only demonstrate a natural integration of verse, calligraphy, painting and seal, but also a fine combination of Chinese and Western painting skills. His figure paintings display the artist's virtuoso command of the techniques of traditional Chinese painting as well as his encyclopedic knowledge of Chinese history and literature, embodied in his depictions of artists, poets, military heroes, famous beauties, and deities. They also combine the finesse and technical polish with the more spontaneous, calligraphic gestures of Chinese literati painting. Learn More…
