About This Book

The Art of Resistance surveys the lives of seven painters�Ding Cong (1916�2009), Feng Zikai (1898�1975), Li Keran (1907�89), Li Kuchan (1898�1983), Huang Yongyu (b. 1924), Pan Tianshou (1897�1971), and Shi Lu (1919�82)�during China�s Cultural Revolution (1966�1976), a time when they were considered counterrevolutionary and were forbidden to paint. Drawing on interviews with the artists and their families and on materials collected during her visits to China, Shelley Drake Hawks examines their painting styles, political outlooks, and life experiences.

These fiercely independent artists took advantage of moments of low surveillance to secretly �paint by candlelight.� In doing so, they created symbolically charged art that is open to multiple interpretations. The wit, courage, and compassion of these painters will inspire respect for the deep emotional and spiritual resonance of Chinese art.
