'A Glimpse into Hong Kong Art 1949–1997 is the first bilingual book that provides a concise account of certain critical strands in the development of Hong Kong art during a set period of time. Based on the author's extensive research on Hong Kong art over the years, this book outlines some important or influential figures, exhibitions, and events that lead to specific shifts in the evolution of postwar art in Hong Kong, including the rise of new ink painting in the 1970s and the close dialogue between art and politics during the transitional period of the handover in 1997.' - excerpted from the bookback

Includes glossary of artist names and selected bibliography.
