Abstract

《如何欣赏中国画》堪称欣赏中国画的入门之书。本书第一、第二章,用了“创新与承传”“写真与写意”这两组对立的概念作为欣赏中国画的基本立足点。第三章的“人物画”说明了中国画的人物画与西方肖像画的区别。第四章主要讲中国画的“留白”。第五章的焦点是并非深不可测的“笔墨”。最后一章聚焦在中国画特有的形式“手卷”。本书的主要目的就是引领读者进入传统中国画的世界。全书时而采用中西对比视角,时而作深入的平行文本探索和细致的局部读解,处处体现出罗淑敏教授的深厚学养。

The Mona Lisa is the archetypal portrait. But in Chinese art, paintings of figures are never called “portraits”. Natural phenomena such as thunderstorms and avalanches never appear in the works of ancient Chinese painters, though logically they must have come across such unusual or terrifying scenes of nature. Furthermore, the flowers that appear in traditional Chinese flower and bird paintings are never thrust into vases as they so often are in Western compositions. So, can traditional Chinese flower and bird painting really be regarded as a form of still life? Applying a comparative approach to Chinese and Western art, this book examines the characteristics of traditional Chinese art and analyses the distinction between figure painting and portraiture. It examines the scenery in Chinese landscape painting and the sense of poetry within the paintings of flowers and birds so that the reader comes to understand the unique essence of Chinese art and is gradually led towards the evanescent world of spiritual abstraction displayed in Chinese painting.
