A Message from the Editor

Yin Jinan
China Central Academy of Fine Arts

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York recently held a symposium on issues surrounding the authenticity of Dong Yuan's Riverbank. Prior to this, mainland Chinese scholars conducted a similar discussion on Zhang Xian's Ten Odes. Yang Renkai, returning from New York, says that Riverbank is a "Song painting." In truth, we find ourselves at a critical point in resolving the criteria for authenticating Song and Five Dynasties painting.

Forty works of calligraphy and painting from the palace of Puyi, the last emperor of the Qing dynasty, appeared in the auction market during the 1990s. These works have played an important role in the maturation of connoisseurship standards. For instance, copies of the Northern Song painting Wind in the Stream and A Secluded Scene by the Yuan artist Lin Zihuan have emerged, and the debate on the authenticity of Zhang Xian's Ten Odes rages on. Another work from Puyi's collection by the Song calligrapher Zhou Yue resurfaced in Taiwan. Li Ao, Chen Zhaoji, and Wang Yumin have jointly authored Research on the Ink Traces of Zhou Yue (Taiwan Laurel Book Company Limited), a reference worth consulting.
