An intelligent and thought-provoking study of the work of Gao Xingjian, this publication is lavishly illustrated with Gao’s ink-wash paintings and details his creative and intellectual development. A central theme in Gao’s oeuvre is reflection on his life as a writer in self-exile in France, a life at once burdened with the memory of his homeland and yet artistically liberating. This book presents to readers a multifaceted lens through which to frame an engagement with the remarkable pictorial, filmic and literary art of the Chinese writer and 2000 Nobel laureate in literature.
The author, Jason C. Kuo, is a Professor of Art History and Archaeology at the University of Maryland and has taught at the National Taiwan University, Williams College, and Yale University.
