The New York Times reviews the work of abstract painter Zao Wou-ki, calling him “arguably China’s most important living artist.” The article quotes UM art historian Joan Kee: ”Zao is part of a coterie of Chinese artists that came of aesthetic age in the 1950s, an intriguing period of time that saw a wide range of Chinese artists practicing in the most diverse circumstance imaginable.” [Source]
