The Chinese-French painter Zao Wou-Ki (1920-2013) developed a distinctive abstract style blending the visual poetry of Chinese painting and calligraphy with European pictorial traditions. This stunning volume presents a richly woven narrative of the artist's life and work. Reintroducing Zao's work to a North American audience, the authors make a substantial contribution to scholarship on transnational art movements in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Their essays consider the reception of Zao's work in the United States; his engagement with postwar abstraction; and his exploration of various artistic media.
