PAINT BY NUMBERS: CHINA'S ART FACTORY FROM MAO TO NOW. Claire Van Den Heever. Earnshaw Books, Hong Kong, 2014. 252 pp. with 15 ills. (13 col.). 21 x 15 cm. ISBN 9789881609069 In English.
Publisher's description: The journey of Chinese art--from mass-produced propaganda in the Mao era to modern-day market darling--mirrors China's own momentous changes like few other disciplines. Today, in both contemporary art and contemporary Chinese society, commerce and politics coexist in a delicate balance, which some call sensible and others, selling out. By traveling to the studios of renowned Chinese artists, hearing their rags-to-riches tales and interviewing the critics, curators, and collectors that have been around since its idealistic beginnings, author Claire Van Den Heever paints a picture of Chinese art's bumpy path to commercial and critical success, and uncovers the secrets it tried to keep along the way.
