No Limits : Zao Wou-Ki
'Zao Wou-Ki, an Abstract Fusion Master' - New York Times
The Chinese-French painter Zao Wou-Ki (1920-2013) is one of the best-known Chinese painters of the 20th century. He developed a distinctive abstract style blending the visual poetry of Chinese painting with European printmaking and abstract oil painting, becoming one of the earliest trans-cultural painters of the 20th century.
This beautiful book accompanies a show at the Asia Society Museum and Colby College Museum of Art -the first comprehensive show of the artist’s work in the United States. No Limits presents a richly woven narrative of the artist's life and work. The essays within No Limits consider the reception of Zao's work in the United States; his engagement with post-war abstraction; and his exploration of various artistic media.
