BookDescription
The first major monograph on Zhang Xiaogang (b. 1958), a leading Chinese contemporary artist, world‐renowned for his haunting, surrealist works. Both a retrospective of his paintings and a biography of his dramatic life, Zhang Xiaogang: Disquieting Memories is a key resource for academia and art enthusiasts alike. This book features all of the artist’s iconic series – major works as well as lesser‐known drawings – and never‐before‐published letters dating from the early 1980s between the artist and his friends. These offer an inside view of everyday life in China, historic and political events, as well as invaluable insight into Zhang’s artistic practice. With a chronology illustrated with personal photographs from the artist’s archive, this is the most comprehensive account of the artist’s life and work.
