|As of 5 August 2007, the Paintings section of the Artistry portion of "Art and Images of China" is divided into 4 subsections.
If this sounds confusing, it is. Basically there were too many images not published on the website due to constraints of the navigational structure.
Many of the images are very large and can not herein be published without loosing some quality. So the larger images, such as the wall scrolls, hanging scrolls and landscapes are divided into several smaller images so that the detail of the work can be examined.
Some of the smaller works such as albums or single subject works are in other subsections.
The new subsections are divided as such:
Albums- Albums are a collection of works by one or more artists with similar subject matter.
Handscrolls- These works are very, very large. Images are broken into several images and displayed separatly so that the detail can be examined. A link to the whole image is available for viewing.
Single Subject- Images unattached to a collection. There may also be a stray leaf from an incomplete album in this subsection as well.
All images in The Art and Images of China :: Artistry :: Paintings will no longer be at this location; they are now published in this forum, along with their original descriptions (which for the most part are non- existent or severely limited).
If visitors have images of Chinese art, please don't hesitate to send the image via email and it will be published in this forum, or in the website depending on how much information is provided. In order to be published on the website, an image must have the name of artist, if applicable, the title of the work, if applicable, the medium, the type of work (hand scroll, wall scroll, etc.) and an era, if known.
If there are any questions, concerns, problems with the links, post a reply.
