A beautiful book about the artist, Qu Leilei

Accompanying an exhibition at the Ashmolean, this book explores the work of the artist, Qu Leilei. Qu Leilei's visual language is well established, and it represents a fusion of east and west, belnding the descriptive, realistic styles of the European Renaissance with Chinese ink painting. 

The book explores the broad themes in Qu Leilei's work: a burning interest in the history of China, and what can be learned from it; a loving concern for human beings and their individual achievements; an absorption in the anatomy and depiction of the human body; an urge to warn against the perils of the world; and a heartfelt desire to integrate Chinese and western art practice and techniques.
