Silent Poetry: Chinese Paintings from the Collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art
Chou, Ju Hsi & Chung, Anita
11 x 12 3/4", 498 pp., color plates, board, d.j., New Haven: 2015. **Due to its size and weight, the shipping cost is $9.95(USA address) and $59.95 (non-USA address).

This handsome volume offers a fresh, comprehensive look at the Cleveland Museum of Art’s world-renowned collection of Chinese paintings. With in-depth study of more than 100 selected works and more than 400 color illustrations, Silent Poetry reflects the growth, both in size and in scope, of the Cleveland Museum’s holdings of Chinese art over the past thirty years. Renowned scholars Ju Hsi Chou and Anita Chung, who have overseen the museum’s Chinese art collection for almost two decades, contribute new scholarship gleaned through investigative methods, conventional and innovative, that include the physical examination of works and digital technology as a supplement to traditional analyses of style, text, context, and artistic technique. An authoritative reference for students, scholars, and collectors, Silent Poetry presents the most up-to-date research on Cleveland's marvelous collection of paintings and encourages new directions in the study of Chinese art.

Ju Hsi Chou is curator emeritus of Chinese art at the Cleveland Museum of Art and professor emeritus of art history at both Arizona State University and the University of Hong Kong. Anita Chung is curator of Chinese art at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
