Almost all the 80 paintings illustrated and discussed in this catalogue, entitled ‘Im Schatten hoher Baeume’ (In the shadow of old trees), are shown here for the first time outside China. Many of them have never been published before. They all are from the collection of the Museum Province Liaoning, Shenyang, which is internationally known for the quantity as well as the high artistic level of its collection.
Although the exhibition focuses on Literati paintings, from the 15th century onwards, examples of various styles and subject groups were selected. The exhibition was planned in cooperation of Chinese and German experts, among them Prof. Lothar Ledderose, Art-Historical Institute, University of Heidelberg, Nora von Achenbach, Herbert Butz, Gerald Holzwarth, Burglind Jungmann, and others.
