THROUGH A CHINESE CONNOISSEUR'S EYE: PRIVATE NOTES OF C.C. WANG

Essays by Kathleen Yang, 2010

C.C. Wang’s collection of private notes was written over a 40 year period, on paintings in the Palace Museum in Taipei and other collections he has studied. These detailed annotations open the door to the inner thoughts of a formidable collector, demonstrating his expertise and thought process as a connoisseur of Chinese literati painting. Included are paintings now housed in museums from his own collection, with the provenance and background of the nineteenth and twentieth-century Chinese collections.

Kathleen Yang was first introduced to C.C. Wang in 1962 by her mother, when he was asked to make an authoritative evaluation of three paintings belonging to the family. For three years, she consulted Wang weekly to ensure accuracy in the translation of his comments from Chinese to English for the publication of his private notes. Yang, a graduate of Harvard University, studied with C.C. Wang for many decades to understand the traditional connoisseurship of Chinese classical painting, a system that has existed for many centuries in China, where one’s knowledge is transmitted from mentor to mentee.

王季迁的私人笔记跨越了40年的时间。笔记中记载了王先生对台北故宫博物院画作和其他收藏的研究。这些详细的注释为他人走进王季迁的内心思想打开了一扇门,展示了他作为中国文人画鉴赏家的专业知识和思考过程。本书涉及现在收藏在博物馆中的王季迁私人绘画藏品,并对19世纪和20世纪中国收藏的起源和背景加以介绍。

凯瑟琳·杨(本书笔者)最初通过其母亲于1962年认识王季迁。当时,她的家族请王季迁对三幅属于其家族的画作做权威性评估。三年来,她每周都会与王先生进行咨询,确保将他的评论从中文准确地翻译成英文,从而出版他的私人笔记。毕业于哈佛大学的凯瑟琳向王季迁求教数十年,学习中国古典绘画的传统鉴赏学。这门学问在中国有着久远的历史,通过师徒纽带将知识和技艺传承至今。
