This is a broadly-based and scholarly study of the revival in Chinese architectural painting which took place under the Qing Dynasty (1644-1912). Translations of little-known texts, and overviews of the visual culture of the period amplify the discussion of the nature and symbolic implications and dimensions of paintings which were much more than architectural drawings. With black and white illustrations, glossary, extensive references, bibliography and index.
