New Book | Hua Yan (1682–1756)

Posted in books by Editor on November 7, 2020

From Brill, this book by Kristen Chiem (now, incidentally, Kristen Brennan). . .

Kristen Loring Chiem, Hua Yan (1682–1756) and the Making of the Artist in Early Modern China (Leiden, Brill, 2020), 224 pages, ISBN: 978-9004427631, €110 / $132.

Hua Yan (1682–1756) and the Making of the Artist in Early Modern China explores the relationships between the artist, local society, and artistic practice during the Qing dynasty (1644–1911). Arranged as an investigation of the artist Hua Yan’s work at a pivotal moment in eighteenth-century society, this book considers his paintings and poetry in early eighteenth-century Hangzhou, mid-eighteenth-century Yangzhou, and finally their nineteenth-century afterlife in Shanghai. By investigating Hua Yan’s struggle as a marginalized artist—both at his time and in the canon of Chinese art—this study draws attention to the implications of seeing and being seen as an artist in early modern China.

Kristen Loring Chiem, Ph.D. (2011), University of California, Los Angeles, is Associate Professor of Art History at Pepperdine University. Her work explores the intersections of gender, painting, and garden imagery in Chinese art.
