Hsieh Shih-ch’en: A Ming Dynasty Painter Represents the Past
This exhibition catalogue for Hsieh Shih-ch'en: A Ming Dynasty Painter Represents the Past includes thirty-three paintings by the 16th century Chinese artist, Hsieh Shih-ch’en.
The works demonstrate the special character of the Ming Dynasty. They display a wide variety of styles, subjects, and media and include hanging scrolls, hand scrolls, album leaves, and fan paintings.
Landscape painting dominates Hsieh Shih-ch’en’s work, but his personal interpretation of different ancient Chinese styles brings a freshness to his subject.
