Three Thousand Years of Chinese Painting - Lang            Shaojun, Nie Chongzheng, Yang Xin, Richard M. Barnhart, Hung Wu, James Cahill A large formatted, very heavy book with astonishingly beautiful prints -- accompanied by academic essays by various specialists. I rarely find the 'academic' essays in these art books to be of much interest -- I'm not sure why -- either because I'm too impatient or because they are often dull --. At any rate, a lovely survey of a vast sweep of Chinese painting.
