Title: Fu Ji Tsang - The Meaning of Flowers. A Chinese Painter's Perspective
Description: Paris. Flammarion. 2004. First edition. Quarto. Hardcover. Fine. Fine. This gift book brings together watercolors and poetry in a celebration of one of the most enduring topics-flower symbolism. Chinese artist Fu Ji Tsang, painting with an unconventional mixture of watercolor, Chinese ink, and calligraphy, unites the traditions of East and West with the influence of such masters as Matisse and Monet. The pages spring to life through the bamboo, lotus flowers, irises, orchids, plum trees, cypress trees, and other plants rendered in an explosion of color. Organized by season, the flowers are accompanied by inspirational poems, personal reflections, historical references, and myths surrounding and explaining their symbolic significances. Born in Beijing in 1958, Fu Ji Tsang studied at the Ecole Nationale d'Art Decoratif in Nice, France, where he eventually settled. He has exhibited his paintings in galleries and museums in Europe, Asia, the United States, and Canada, and has published several books, including Mes Carnets de Chine.
