Bloodlines: The Zhang Xiaogang Story
Lü Peng and Bruce Doar
The first major illustrated narrative on Zhang Xiaogang, China’s most prominent and influential contemporary painter. Written by Lü Peng, this book is both a biography of Zhang Xiaogang’s fascinating life story and an authoritative insider’s perspective of his most celebrated works. A luxuriously illustrated narrative, over four decades, it provides an authentic and world-first contextual analysis of Zhang’s earliest years, family life, art studies, intellectual conflicts, European experiences, and his “Bloodline” work.
