Liu Dan is one of China's most renowned living artists, translating his fastidious observations of the world around him into ink through fresh ideas about composition and original brushstroke techniques. This expansive selection of his recent paintings-meticulous and unexpected landscapes, rocks, and still-lifes-showcase both his technical virtuosity and unrestrained imagination.
