Synopsis

The Mustard Seed Garden Manual of Painting A Facsimile of the 1887-1888 Shanghai Edition by Mai-Mai Sze

Originally published as Volume 2 of The Tao of Painting, this is the first English translation of the famous Chinese handbook, the Chieh Tzu Yuan Hua Chuan (original, 1679-1701). Mai-mai Sze has translated and annotated the texts of instructions, discussions of the fundamentals of painting, notes on the preparation of colors, and chief editorial prefaces.

Reviews

The Mustard Seed Garden will always be one of the greatest manuals of the most marvellous painting the world has ever known, and one cannot be too grateful for having it, with its commentary, available in English. --Journal of the Royal Central Asian Society
