In China, a fan has traditionally been both a practical object and an artistic work that expresses the owner’s learning or personality. The high-end craftsmanship of Chinese fans, encompassing poetry, calligraphy and painting, has long captivated the West.

This sumptuous book, newly translated from the original Korean, showcases 71 examples dating from between the late 18th and 20th centuries. It follows on from the popular volume on European Fans, and the fine objects featured in Chinese Fans are again drawn from the renowned Eurus Collection in South Korea.
