Flying White (I) — Eastern Hegenbarth
The Draftsman Josef Hegenbarth and the Chinese Painting
For the first time, evidence has been collated that places Hegenbarth clearly within the orbit of the East Asian art tradition. Techniques and effects comparable to Chinese ink painting can often be found in Hegenbarth's brush drawings.
Eleven masterpieces from China are juxtaposed with eleven by Hegenbarth, in chronological order. In this way, the continuous development as well as the similarities and differences of both traditions become obvious.
