This is a great start, & should enjoy at least 4 stars, but I can't bring myself to award more than 2 stars because - through no fault of the author - Chinese art has moved on so fast since he wrote this biography, that I find alot of Chinese artists known outside China are simply not included in the book. For researchers & students it's a great snapshot in time; for collectors it is rather disappointing. So the question is when is the next edition going to be ready?!
