Durable, flexible and abundant in nature, bamboo has been used as a material and a subject in Chinese art for millennia. Because it bends in a storm but does not break, it was particularly associated with the integrity and personal virtue of the scholarly elite, who embraced its symbolic value by planting bamboo in their courtyards, observing it in the wild, and by producing, acquiring and displaying delicate bamboo objects suitable for various scholarly pursuits, such as painting and calligraphy. During the Ming dynasty (1368-1644), scholarly and imperial patronage transformed bamboo carving into a major art form. Scholar-carvers and workshops centred around Jiading (in present-day Shanghai) and Jinling (now Nanjing) produced large numbers of brush pots, wrist rests, miniature landscapes, figurines and other objects. Many bamboo carvers also worked in other materials soft enough to be manipulated with the 'iron brush'--a term for knives and other carving tools used by literati to transfer their brushwork aesthetic to other media--including boxwood, rhinoceros' horns and ivory, which shared a kind of loose identity under the heading of diaoke ('carving' in modern Chinese). Small in scale yet teeming with life, these works reflect prodigious technical skill and great imaginary involvement because of the unique shapes and contortions of the materials involved. ???????,?????,?????????????????????????????,???????,???????????????????????????????????????,???????????????????????????????????,?????????? ??(?????????)????????????????????????????????(???)???(???)???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????-- ??????????????????????????????-- ????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????,????????????????????

Born into a poor farming family and coming of age during China's century of civil strife, Qi Baishi transformed the elite brush art of China's literati scholars into a universal art form appreciated by people of all social backgrounds. His distinctly modern art language breaks through class and cultural barriers through use of expressive "carved" brushwork, juxtaposition of vibrant colours against deep and rich ink tones, poetic economy in form and composition, and choice of emotionally resonant subject matter. For these reasons, Qi Baishi's art is the ideal gateway through which art lovers of any class or culture can learn about the millenia-old tradition of Chinese brush painting. A selection of Qi Baishi's seal carving - the art of the "iron brush" - links his origins as an artisan carver to his life as China's most celebrated calligrapher, poet and painter. The scholarly discipline calligraphy then forms the basis for our understanding Qi Baishi's distinctive carved brushwork. Published in association with Marquand Books and the Mozhai Foundation.
