This latest publication from Marcus Flacks examines and contextualizes more than two hundred masterpieces in wood, each of which was an element of the classical Chinese scholar’s studio. Among these objects are several rare censers, a spectacular carrying box with woven bamboo panels, a magnificent carved imperial pillow, and many other objects made for scholar and emperor alike. Conceived around five ideal models of scholars’ studios, Custodians of the Scholar’s Way is a feast for the eye and for the intellect. It is beautifully produced, lush with breathtaking full-color images of the magnificent scholars’ objects created over the span of a millennium, and includes an approachable yet erudite introductory essay by Flacks that enables both novice and expert to gain a deeper understanding of the history and delight of Chinese scholars’ objects.
