About This Book

Fan Chang Tien was an influential Chinese-Singaporean ink artist. He was taught by Wang Geyi and was a second-generation disciple of the grand master of the Shanghai School, Wu Changshuo. After arriving in Singapore Fan went on to teach a whole generation of important Singaporean artists that included Chua Ek Kay and Ling Cher Eng. Fan Chang Tien: The Literati Artist brings together over 160 of the artist's finest works, many from his family's private collection and previously unpublished. This book is separated into four main sections: Landscapes & Figures, Bamboo and Other Black and Whites, Birds, Flowers & Fish, and Selection from the National Collection, Singapore. There are also informative bilingual essays from pre-eminent experts in Chinese ink art as well as pieces written by Fan's daughter that give an insight into his life and inspiration. The poetry that is featured on many of Fan's artworks has been translated into English for the first time.
